I Live in the Twentieth Century

I live in the
Twentieth Century and
you lie here beside me.
You were unhappy when you
fell asleep. There was nothing I
could do about it. I felt helpless.
Your face is so beautiful that
I cannot stop to describe it,
and there’s nothing I can
do to make you happy
while you sleep.

Richard Brautigan
