Existence

By Lydia VandeWege

 

Are you actually standing

are you really

 

You have never stood

you will never stand

it is impossible to stand

 

what are you doing then,

still in that upright position

 

you are floating

 

the ground has never touched your feet

the grass has never tickled your toes

that you have dreamed

 

what you are really is air

blown about

air that dreams

 

you and I do not exist

this has never happened

 

dreams are all you have

and soon forget

nothing is real
