Chasing the Dream

by Marilyn McIntyre

time floating downstream
in an ancient bottle
plugged with different futures
I dash excitedly
up and down the bank
like a well trained Lassie
barking excitedly
and then wade in to stop time
the eddy pried it away
running on rapidly
burbling with life
and plunging round the bend
i wonder what the
message might have been
don't chase me down
I'm here, I'm gone
and life is but a dream.
