Dream A Little Dream With Me
by Lori Vest
As I caught the alligator
As it ran towards me across the dusty bedroom floor
I told the cat
Who looked at me from a bed frame
You must have been scared
He replied to me as he stood up
on his back feet
The one we feared was here yesterday
I turned my head to the door
Alligator in hand
And glimpsed
A shimmer of a light
And from my dream
Of a talking cat and a alligator on the bedroom floor
I ran awake
The words the cat spoke
Four days past
Haunt my days
