Dream 66
(3/4/2022)


I am working
in some type
of lab

I know
that I am
a prisoner
but am still
trying
to do
my best

I show
the numbers
that I have scribbled
in a notebook
to an older man
in a white
lab coat

dark rimmed
glasses

gray beard

“that’s very
perceptive
of you”

he says
with a surprised
smile

“keep up
the good
work!”

I am pleased
that he is
happy
with me

but I know
that he doesn’t
belong here

neither
do I

and that
sooner
rather than
later

I need
to kill
this nice
scientist

and make
my escape
