she said,
i had a dream i was lost,
and couldn’t find my way home.

i said,
what did you feel at the moment
you realized you were lost?

she said,
i felt anxious,
but also bemused.
she looked at me.
strange, isn’t it?

i said,
why do you say that?

she said,
sometimes i fear i will be lost forever,
and never found.

i said,
is this a fear,
or a fantasy?
