he can only dream

 there are no opportunities,
 for the ultimate inequality
 is of attractiveness

 so images are all he has;
 that, and his anger:
 boiling, simmering, spurting --

 he can only dream of what he wants,
 he can only make up stories
 and scenarios

 where the image becomes reality,
 for his actual reality bares no resemblance,
 except for the drinking
