You're Most Like Me......

You’re most like me
When you’re sleeping,
      Having a nightmare
About falling forever
The basement stairs.
Slipping at the edge
Of the evening,
Falling ten thousand feet
At 30 feet per second
        Per second squared
Through the dark
       wind at my back
For the ground to attack.
Looking up-
       Falling down.
You waking up-
       Looking around
At the morning,
Its cold sweat
Sticking to your sheets
        From your topsy-
Turvy ride
On my airless balloon,
From your recollection
Of a dream
        Of being me
Without ever knowing me
Or even
Seeing my shadow
        Crossing the moon.
