DREAMING AND URINATION

DREAMING AND URINATION

Stranded by lover.
Stranded at train station
By lover for something.
Something that could be
Settled by a mini summit.
Jilted and upset, I attempt
To cross the rail lines to board
The homegoing express train.
To return to a lonely home
And was almost flattened
By the oncoming express train.
Suddenly, I was woken up from sleep.
Alas, it was the dream of
The urge of the full bladder.

I find myself in a forest.
A forest full of snakes.
Snakes poised and ready
To strike at an unwelcome,
Uninvited visitor — an intruder.
Visitor started slaying the serpents,
But one serpent evaded the
Machete and was about to
Strike a venomous blow
To the visitor’s torso.
Suddenly, I was woken up from sleep.
Alas, it was the dream of
The urge of the full bladder.

It was a feast fit for a king.
Long banquet tables piled
High with all manner of delicacies.
Delectable delicacies fit
For a king and his guests.
But what event is this?
Is it a wedding feast?
Is it a coronation feast?
As I was about to eat,
Suddenly, I was woken up from sleep.
Alas, it was the dream of
The urge of the full bladder.

Is it me or does dreaming
Especially unconsummated dreaming
Signal the body to arise and
Empty a full bladder that would have
Emptied on the counterpane?
Most bed-wetters think they
Are dreaming until the urine
Has transversed the counterpane to
The mattress and embarrassed the dreamer.

Dreaming and urination are indeed
Strange bed fellows that forestall bed-wetting!
