Sober Dream

Veering off course, I found myself
in a strange intersection

dreaming, of course
I found myself in enough pain to awake

it was the first sober dream
I’ve had in a year of Mondays

the pain in my useless limbs
receding, I found the truth
pouring away from me like a fountain

I tried to hold on with
eight stiff fingers and two broken thumbs
but it all slipped away from me

the meaning that once was so clear
