Just Dreaming..... - Poem by Ruth Walters
The string unsealed itself,
the little stick-on flower fell.
The paper unwrapped around the box
that hung open now…..
The shop keeper's hand fell loose
and money slipped from hers to mine
as she retrieved the gift
I reversed, drifting, floating
all the way down the street
along with all the other
plebs that night.
My house lights came on
as I backed into the hallway
and my make up slid off
as I regurgitated tea
that filled my teacup up
and as I dropped on to the bed
my clothes hung themselves in the wardrobe
and I fell asleep in the moonlight,
asleep per chance to dream
