A dream of falling from a balcony
Toward an unknown brown leather couch
In an unknown room filled with trophies,
Animals from Africa; lions, gazelles, hyenas, water buffalo
North America; wolves, bears, elk and moose.
I never reached the couch. I woke up.
Years later, my boss’s house, the trophy room
I found my nightmare,
The room, balcony and couch.
Hard to go to the balcony,
The fear of falling forever.
