daydreaming is fast becoming
and endangered species,
with its habitats
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
a stream of celibate downloads,
upon which the birth of Imagination, reconceived,
swaps slow, sovereign wandering
for breakneck usage rate?
