“THIS IS NOT MY DREAM”

 

 

 

 

THIS IS NOT MY DREAM

 

Draw
attention
the head swivels
spinning humming
this warm November morning
dead leaves suffocate
the soil my heart
panting throbbing
the nightmare
shaking screaming
dead people block
the basement door and
Dad won’t call the cops
did he do it?

This is not my dream.
