Last night …

Last night I had one
of those dreams where
the main action has
already happened,
and you wander around
trying to work out
what has occurred,
and where everything
went,
like a bumbling
store detective …
 
… or like walking
into a home where an
argument still hangs
in the air, like a forgotten
helium balloon
from a fractious
party …
 
… trying desperately
to reconstruct
the past,
confabulating madly
like a man
who has ruined
his memory
with alcohol …
 
… but very like simply
being a human being,
wondering what all those
people in the past
could have been thinking
to leave behind
this curious mess.

    I am confused a lot and I thought it was just me. I guess this is normal for everyone. Maybe it is the ones that aren’t confused that we should worry about?
