Dreams 2022

Dream 35
(1/29/2022)


I am
driving
in a hilly
wooded
area

even though
I am on
a six lane
interstate
my car
is the only
one
in sight

all
of the sudden
a truck backs
from the woods
across the three
lanes going
in my direction

what’s
his problem?

I think

he only
had to wait
a second or two
for me
to pass

he stops
backing
and just sits
there

I have
to slow

to inch
around him

as I speed
away
I look behind
me

now seeing
many vehicles
approach
where the truck
still parks

I wonder
if he is having
a mechanical issue

but already
by
I want
to keep going

I don’t want
to go back
to be part
of the problem

to be part
of any solution
