dream a little dream

Image result for www.organicgreendoctor.com
i am on a roll
dreamin like crazy

why just last night when i was working in the
emergency room as an add on doctor for the
night since they were expecting a busy night
in the emergency room
this guy
this truckdriver
he needed to move his semitruck across the highway
so he could go through the check out line those trucks
have to go through with the highway partrol

he couldnt drive
right now i cant remember why
but in the dream it was explained to me why
i got in the big semi
backed that thing back
going north
then drove it over the median
you know where you arent suppose to go
but the police do it all the time
i ued it
where i turned there was a big trench deeper
then the truck
as i was uing the wheels on one side dropped
into the trench
down down into that trench it went
it luckily didnt turn over
it just slid kerplunk into the trench
all wedged in like it was in a box
the truckdriver swapped places with me
so i wouldnt get in trouble
i went back across the highway
back to working in the er
in walked the highway patrol
they asked me a lot of questions
i knew for sure
i was in trouble
i just woked up
solved that dream didnt i

i told them
just call tom hell get that truck out of there

now im on a dream roll
im not sure why
these dreams quite vivd at times
i call my aricept dreams
the medicine i started 8 years ago for alzheimers
has this side effect

i do realize though
that these dreams are part of the disease process
as it progresses
just hoping thats not why

sometimes i think it might be better not to know too much

some nights im having three dreams a night
if i happen to wake up twice during the night
thats three vivid almost real dreams
that i can never finish

i thought about it a lot this week
when that teenager that they were going to harvest his
organs for donation since he was brain dead
he woke up
then described this death dream he had

i read where yale is going to do this death dream research
i call it where brains will be kept alive outside the body
they are using pigs
so i guess all they can do is dream and thats it
sounds creepy to me

thats what my dreams feel like sometimes
like my brain is out of my body

lucky for me
many times in my dreams i do something that wakes me up
why just this weekend
i was in my high school gym in mt holly
demonstrating how i could go up and over a tall person
do a one handed left hand dunk
as i dunked i heard this loud thunk
i completed the dunk in my dream
woke up quickly

there on the other side of the bed was a throw pillow
laying where it bounced off the wall

i was saved again
the confines of my dream

dream a little dream for me
