In Your Dreams
You discover you are nothing more than a figment of another person’s dream! What is this dream about and how did you get there in the first place? (Short story <1000 words or poetry < 31 lines)

I dreamed, and in my dream, I saw
me sleeping—a child. brown hair,
familiar bed, stuffed mountain lion
clutched in my hands—
my hair is grayed now,
my body older,
although in my heart, I'm still that child
sleeping, dreaming of some future
where good things happen and
the woman, dreaming of past days.
and my dreaming eyes could see,
but they were closed,
and the mountain lion felt soft
between my variable hands.
