A theory of dreams

Last night I dreamed about you.
Only it was a dream of us
being just as we are,
eating cereal after the kids fall asleep,
tidying up,
and you doing something absurd
to make me laugh.
I suppose I could have dreamed
that I could fly
or turn into a dragon
or have sex with anyone I wanted.
But I like the theory that dreams
help us store important memories.
Which makes sense
since the ordinary wonder
of our life together
is the only thing I want
to remember.
