Eating Ice Cream for Breakfast?

Eating Ice Cream for Breakfast?
my dreams
spreading like a plague
infecting each night
never-ending nightmares
I awake each morning
more exhausted
than the last
I am feeding masses of people
and coming up short
saving friends and family
from unknown perils
running or escaping unseen predators
and… always…always falling
 most traumatic
was frantically trying
to cover my naked body
while out in public
with only my hands…..
as I slowed my pounding heart
my lover turned to me and said
“maybe you should start eating that ice cream
in the morning, instead of before bedtime?”
