Debra Winger With Three Eyes

________________________________________________________________________________________________

In a sarcastic tone, someone
called me "Paul Picasso."

I was flattered.
 
That night,  I dreamt about 
Debra Winger 
with three eyes and a slit
for a second mouth.





Her second nose 
was obviously mine!

I asked her where
she was going.

To see Dr. Paul, she said.

The flattery was compounded.

with a therapist named 
Paul Weston.

The flattery was replaced by intrigue.

My character is named Frances Greer.
It's an HBO series called  In Treatment. 

My salary will be used for a U-Haul
and a limousine.

I asked where she was going.

I'm not going anywhere.
The limousine will transport
your fiance and her two cats
from New York to California.

The U-Haul will follow the limo
with all her possessions.

Then the phone rang and it was my fiance.

I told Carol that I had a solution
to our bi-coastal dilemma.

What I told Carol 
may or may not have
been part of the dream.

    1. When you multiply personalities,
      you multiply my appreciation of same.

      But I always thought soubrette
      was an alternative to ice cream.

    2. Sorry, sobriquet.

    3. No need to apologize:

      Misspelled words can be
      valuable touchstones.

      PS
      Sobriquet sounds like
      an ice cream with
      a charcoal flavor.
