Dream 12
(1/11/2022)


“HURRY UP!

grab
your stuff!

we have
to leave
NOW!"

I do not
recognize
this woman
yelling
at me

I see people
throughout
a large
open building
the size
of a warehouse

but housing
only
disheveled humans

overclothed

arms full
of belongings

I am wearing
only a t-shirt

pajama pants

slippers

I carry
nothing

I look
desperately
around
for anything
that might
be mine

all
of the sudden
everyone starts
rushing toward
a large
open door
at the other
end
of the building

I stand
still
hoping that with
a thinning crowd
I'll be able
to see
some personal
possessions

“COME ON!”

the woman
screams

grabbing
my arm

dragging
me along
with her
