What if This is the Dream? By Mike Yost (Photographer/Writer)3 months ago And tomorrow is the dream, and the day after that,day after day,until you’re 73and you fall onto the tracksand as the train severs your headyou wake up with a terrific shock out of your own bedcovered in sweat,heart racing,the whirling memories of 73 years dreamt in a single nightquickly fading away with each passing secondyou slow your breathingyou close your eyes“What the hell was that?” you ask yourself“Who was I?” you ask yourselfthere is no response of coursejust a few birds chirping outside the window lit by the rising sunand you wonder if you’ve truly woken upand you shake your headand you tell yourself no more mushroom sandwiches before bedand you stumble into the kitchenturning on the coffee pot. © Mike Yost Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
