Wet Dream

27 Feb
in my dream, I saw
the mountainous wave explode against 
the shoreline breakwall
which the incoming waters 
towered over

I was ahead of it by five hundred yards
which seemed a good head start
almost lulling me into a sense of complacency
but still, I ran as fast as my chubby little legs
could trying to reach higher ground

the frothing snake-like river 
was quickly gaining on me
carrying with it cars, buildings, 
and mangled people

there is a kind of terror that empties
the bladder and lower intestines
I awoke soiled
