To Judy: Shards of Glass

i have had dreams;
seen most shattered:
shards of glass on the concrete roads i've traveled.

i laughed most of the broken dreams away
(the others no one knew
are still around,
not laughed away).
i survive laughing.

there is a gentle incline
up the road to your house;
two horses graze peacefully
in the pasture
on the other side of the fence;
i drove past your house last night,
turning in the cul-de-sac,
passing the horses again
on the way out.

i hope your dreams
are not shards of glass
on the concrete roads
of texas.
