I Went to Work Today

I went to work today.
I work for a school district.                               I drive a school bus,
But I went to work today
To see if this were a joke, a prank.
To see if everyone else 
Had returned and 
Forgotten to tell me.
I went as though 
Awakening from a dream.
I went, but no one was there.
So I turned and went back
To my real life , 
Away from the dream.

Dear Elvis, my story about loss and grief, written as a series of letters to the king, is available at
