NaPoWriMo 2021 Day 13

Untitled #13 by Larry Mawby

early this morning

i was dreaming

i was an older woman

living in a care facility

arguing with my daughter

about the activities

she wanted me do.

i became aware

that this was a dream

that i was editing.

i inserted & later cut out

several nice things like

jai alai and handbags.

then i awoke and

most of the dream

was snatched back

out of my memory

by my dreaming self.

what we have here is

an incomplete reconstruction,

much like an archaeological dig,

of that dream. my life in that dream

is not well understood by anyone

for who really understands

anyone, especially oneself?
