I Was Once Upon A Time: 7.25.17

__________________________________________________________________________________________

I was handed a napkin with three words written on it: I, Was, Once. They were spaced out in different spots inside the white square. I was asked to fill in the blank space. 

And so it came to me, inside a haze of beer and intellectual challenge, staring at the white blankness between the three black scribbles:

I exist dreaming of a once

had time amongst the 

green. Mist on my nose was

all that needed exist

between me and the ice

air of a dream I 

had

once.

(7/2317)

I am left wondering these few days later, why my dream was made of ice; but remember laying atop a roof at sunrise, some (more than) few years ago, trying to defy the cold.
