Car in Reverse

Car in reverse

Is he awake or lost in a lucid dream?

Drifting in a car beyond his reverie

The car shifts into reverse, thrusts at high speed

A vague frightening journey to abyss.

Too bizarre to be real, he wonders

As he’d already seen this farce happening

Then he wakes just to realize

His runaway car swears to left and right

On the same path of his dream

The helpless driver in silence

Watching his destiny revealed.

Nothing he can do to alter

The ominous reality or his fantasy

A terrified witness, that’s all he is

Doomed to discern a horrific crash

Before or after his awakening .
