On the Nature of Daydreaming

In America,

daydreaming is fast becoming

an anachronism,

and endangered species,

with its habitats

being destroyed,

and its numbers in the wild

decreasing at an alarming pace.

Which raises the question–

What would daydreaming’s extinction

mean in relation

to the internal travel industry

as a whole,

and will its ghostly echoes

reverberate within

a stream of celibate downloads,

upon which the birth of Imagination, reconceived,

swaps slow, sovereign wandering

for breakneck usage rate?
