A Dream I Had


I just remembered
a dream I had.

I was at a party
sitting at a table
but everyone else was standing
looking down at me with
disdain and contempt 

And it felt like
I had just said something 
that everyone in the room
disagreed with

but here’s the thing:

I remember very distinctly 
that I felt calm
with absolutely no need 
to explain myself further 

That’s when I knew
I was dreaming.
