Another world, Another Time

Blink.
I am in a room and everything is in grey-scale.
Blink.
I see traffic; vehicles that think they are going somewhere, but are they really?
Blink.
I am in the room again; I have a book in my hand.
Blink.
We are a-stop, a roadblock; aren’t we always?
Blink.
I see myself in the room with that book in my hand. I look calm.
Blink.
Back, in prime traffic. I see my face reflected on the window, the haste of getting to my destination on time. Destination?

Blink.
This time, I am at a natural pool at the base of a spring; brown and green.
Blink.
In a boxy office space, glum faces stare into their computer screens.
Blink.
I leap into the pool; my hearing dulls in the water.
Blink.
My eardrums cringe at the noise from the incessant punching on keyboards and clicks on the mouse.
Blink.
I emerge for air now, the cool water surrounds my senses; breathe.
Blink.
I see my own computer screen and my own hands flying ceaselessly over my keyboard.

Blink.
Now, I am flying over a vast nothingness.
Blink.
Back to my room, filled with familiar objects, each questioning their purpose.
Blink.
I can feel the wind on my face; a-swoosh and a- roar.
Blink.
Dinner; Oft exciting but dull today. Some salt with vegetables.
Blink.
I can feel the chill in my bones, and the sun warming my skin. Wait, it is night in my world right?
Blink.
The moon is out, the sky is brown with pollution and I see no stars.

Blink.
I close my eyes once more with great trepidation for I won’t open them for at least another few hours.
I can’t wait to see where my unconscious mind takes me this time.
I close my eyes and meet my reality.
