Forty-Second Birthday Dream

Taking my dogs for a walk
in my quiet suburban
neighborhood. I spied three bears
walking on the frozen pond—
a mother and her two cubs—
and hurried my dogs away.
Then we encountered two wolves,
who ran away from even
more black bears. I steered my dogs
in another direction,
yearning for the safety of
home. I suddenly faced two
large wolves with glowing green eyes,
who leered at us with malice.
I’ll give my life for my dogs,
I promised and steeled myself
for the impending battle
before my eyes shot open.
