My Brother Again by James Babbs

this morning
I saw my brother again
he was driving a black car
and he suddenly stopped
at the side of the road
so I pulled up next to him
and asked him
what was going on
because I thought
maybe
he was having car trouble
it was a bright and sunny day
and we were parked on a road
that seemed familiar to me
but none of the houses looked
the way I remembered them
my brother leaned out the window
and started to give me an answer
but before he could say anything
I woke up and
the radio was playing
a classic rock song
my brother died in a car wreck
back in 1983
and I still have dreams about him
