I saw myself
up ahead
on top
of this sand dune
waving to me.

Now I’m here
nowhere in sight.

I might have known.

These footprints
that don’t exist
here where
I am standing
would have been
the same size
as mine
if they did.

It’s strange.

I was actually glad
to see myself.

I seemed so happy
to be standing here
waving like this.
