Setting a scene

The minute I wake up
the dream takes a back seat
and two minutes later
I can’t remember a thing.

But I am sure it was great
because I woke up quite late
in a sweat.

get me,
acting like I’m twenty three
that’s the beauty of
the dreaming state.

And it is a bit like getting old,
you can’t hold on for more
than two minutes.
