American Authors say this is gonna be the best day of my life

I had a dream so big and loud
I jumped so high I touched the clouds
they also say.
I woke up this morning
as if a water balloon had burst
on my forehead
because I couldn’t remember
if the lizard I’d found
underneath my wrist skin
the night before was real
or not.
