yours wasn't the only bad dream last night.

I walked through the hotel doors toward my room
and passed through the lobby,
making way through to the courtyard,
past the swimming pool

where I saw people smiling,
drinking beer and dropping names
and laughing at each other's jokes

and I wanted to scream at them,
over the dull roar of my headphones:

"How can you laugh
at a time like this?

Do you have any idea
how far away I am from home?"
