HOW IT HAPPENS

Just before I wake up it’s Friday
and a child I’ve never met
living in my old house by the river
takes a walk to the dark bank
withdraws a gold nugget
small as his infant sister’s eyeball
bigger than all the false gold
he’d ever found there before—
but this time it’s the real thing
and the kid looks astonished
has no idea what will happen next
and I’m a little startled too
I wake up thinking liquid
liquidity, liquefaction.

One thought on “HOW IT HAPPENS

  1. Some dreams are so real that they bother me for a couple of hours after I wake up, wondering if what I dreamed had really happened. Sounds like your post here today 🙂
