The Secret to Time Travel

Maybe sleep is the conduit
for non-linear time.
Dreams have a funny way
of placing people at the
wrong time in the wrong place.
We wake up confused, sometimes happy,
sometimes sad-
we honestly thought we were hanging out
on our childhood porch, complete with
damp spring smell, and chipped white
painted metal rocking chairs with
an ex lover who is probably having
his own bad dreams.

    Ha, yes. Took my cat to a house I lived in before she was born, last night.

  3. I agree, ‘Maybe sleep is the conduit
    for non-linear time’
    and poets are time travelling prophets, like Dr Who.

  4. Yes that’s the only way. Dreams can be flashbacks and being.

  5. I was really surprised this morning when my bike didn’t have a flat tyre. Only then did I realise I had dreamt that the tyre hand a huge hole in it. What dream will my bike have had about me, that same night? 😉
