Jogging at Night

By Manabu Ozawa from Japan

I was running down the street at 2 AM.
I saw a dog putting his head into a garbage can.

        A bum was sleeping on the bench in the park.
I remember the ambulance's red flash.
I was just running away from something I was afraid of.
         HURRY UP, something was behind me. RUN.

I woke up in my bed.
It was a nice nightmare. I hadn't had one in a long time.

I stepped out from my bed.
         There was a pair of shoes on my feet.
