Purpose and Meaning – Don Draper Pt2

More on my favorite Mad Man!


He woke one dawn with wisps of dream
still clinging round his eyes;
and found he was a stranger with
a life he did not know.

He rose and stood in mirrored light
and while a ruined stranger watched;
he dressed a broken body
in a stranger’s shabby clothes.

All through the day, he spoke the words
though they were not his own;
then drove strange streets in fading light
to an unfamiliar home.

And when night came in a stranger’s bed
he slipped into his dreams
of loss and shame, of choices made,
and how it might have been.
