LOVEINT, a piece of surveillance poetry

I dreamt 
that I was being 
followed monitored judged desired by
the best surveillance man in the business
that he could tell I wanted him
even when I looked a picture of normality
that his dark gaze could pierce me
whenever he turn't it toward me
and never often enough.

I dreamt
that everything I did had an audience
that the secret significance of my actions
had someone to appreciate them.

I dreamt 
of chemtrails and HAARP arrays
and distant lovers,
desirous of my scent like the old stasi 
watching me
aching for an excuse to render me 

I woke.

Did you dream of me?

Mind you guard your heart against the disappointment of having the "human interest" of "humint" to fade into the colder, more analytical, more numerous gaze of "sigint" and yet further analyses....
