I dreamt last night that my father was cremated
I held his urn
There was no emotion in me
I did not mourn
I investigated the urn
My face did not reflect back
From the brass
I wanted to make it shiny
I rubbed at the urn
A genie popped out
“Why have you summoned me?” He asked
I did not have an answer
I woke up and remembered that my dad
Is a dead beat
This would explain him being cremated,
But what would explain the genie
And my lack of wishes?
