A VISION




A VISION 
The bookstore is dark. 
I turn on the lights. 
Rows of bookcases loom tall. 
I open the curtains. 
The Florida sun flows in through picture windows. 
Bright squares fall across the floor. 
The perfect spot for comfy couches and chairs. 
A counter with stools to the right, 
where I would serve coffee and pastries. 
Book stacks to the left. 
Yes, it’s all coming alive to me. 
A bookstore/ coffee shop 
in the seaside town of Oasis. 
Little did I know of the otherworldly plans
taking place at the same time as mine. 
Plans that are in no way 
as peaceful and innocent as mine. 
THE DEAD GAME
