Oligarchies Come to Me at Night

Oligarchies come
to me at night –
usually three
enlightened despots –

mildly engaged
with one another –
generally on
a kindred page –

they rarely fight.
What they hope to do,
I’m never sure.
I think perhaps

they make a tour
of other sleeping
human beings, too –

to deliberate about
conundrums in us
which, awake,
we won’t recall.

What otherwise
they may be
up to I have
no idea at all.
