the name of the dream

confusion at the penultimate stop

was returning from a day out in exeter

the last but one stop the train made before it got to my destination (plymouth) gave me the opportunity to finish the journey by catching a bus from outside the train station

got off the train and the confusion began

the name of the station was different from the one on the map

no one i asked had heard of the station i thought i was standing on

i couldn't leave the station to check the bus route because i would have to surrender the ticket to get out of the station

the pressure was on

if i got back on the train, the next stop might not be the destination i thought it would be

the people on the platform became assembled into groups of thirty or so and were becoming as confused as me

first, one group of people walked one way then a different group moved into where the first group had been

another group of people were coming up from the far end of the platform

the train would be pulling out any time now

i was alone, confused and everybody else was confused in groups

it had the potential to get worse

i woke up before it did
