in my dream
I was a mother
trapped by a polar bear
on an island
I was forced to eat cork
I found from an old shipwreck
to survive

I was also the child
leaving my mother behind
on the island
first trying to scale
a mountain of ice
to get back to her

But finally
giving up and
boarding a boat
for the mainland
so I wouldn’t be
late for school
