Taken away

Do you ever have one of those dreams from which you wake up and can't really tell whether it might have actually happened? I had such a dream last night. The cops came to my house, woke up and scared my children, and then took me away in handcuffs in front of all my neighbors. I was being driven downtown, with tears in my eyes, wondering how I'd ever take a shit in front of another person while in jail, when I woke up. But I still can't shake the feeling that something like this happened to me. I can still feel the painful bite of the cuffs and the hard back seat of the cop car.
