Drive Home, by Daniel Flanagan

& what if our lives are nothing but a figment
Of someone else’s imagination
Our individual lives are all another individual’s dream

Everyone thinks they are unique though
Esoteric though

I wrote this at a red traffic light
& it turned green & the sports car honked at me
With fury!
He has yet to realize he is not real.

I drove past picketers with political picket signs
& they were passionate about a dream
& so I honked at them
Gave a thumbs up to support another’s dream

We are all dreaming
But not all of us are dreamers.
