Election Day

I had a dream about being at a train station

And watching a little boy run, giggling, to pet an opossum that was eating trash

He thought the opossum was cute


For his trouble, the boy was bitten and scratched several times


While his mother walked around the corner, thinking her son was dutifully behind her


And me?

I just got on a train and traveled the opposite way.
