Genies and Their Ways

I released my genie yesterday
when he acceded to my final wish: to see
what he would do when freed from slavery.
He said, “Oh, I'd have done that anyway –

to show you genies don’t agree to be
with anyone because we’re made to:
we can't resist a captive audience to play to!”
(Apparently the captor here had not been me,

but he.) And when he left, what did he do?
He randomly made other dreams come true,
while making sure each dreamer saw just who
was doing it. I asked that one of them be you.
