The Thing Which Was Like a Thing

I had a dream.
In this dream,
there was a thing
which was very much like
another thing.

Not much to go on,
I realize.
But I swear to you
that this first thing
was so much like

the thing it was like,
that you could barely
tell them apart.
They could have been
cousins

or co-workers or even twins.
Well, except for the fact
that they did not co-exist
as two things –
but as one thing

that made you think
of some other thing.
Had one of these things
bumped into the other thing
at the grocery store,

it would have said,
“Hey—wait a minute,”
except for the fact
that things can’t talk
or see or think…,

or can they?
Uh oh.
This is what happens
every time I start to think
about things.
