Dream Awake


My self has gone


With my daytime


I dance to what


You do to me


I dream awake


And watch you


Lift me from


The crowd.

Black Line


Chased by the spotlight of day


I hang onto the wheel


Counting numbers


Until the black line is drawn


And behind the curtains of night


She puts me in my place


I commit a million tiny murders


Or a knife attack, in secret


It's just the same


But I'm changed


Close as hell is hot


I stoke the coals


In my belly


And my face


Is just something I wash.

In Reality


In reality this isn't a city


Just the edge of land


Hysterical with immigrants


Talking so loud


I fight to hear


Her low dark moan.


Their illusions


A rocket ship


When a road


Is all I can see.

The Half Moon


The half moon


Reaching down for us


Her glittery pathway


Spread there before us


If we step in


The sea can take us


Or turn for home


Her light to guide us.

Ball Gowns


She's an explosion inside a circle, courting me with the sun. I burn just to be beside her, from her reflected glow. All day I hear her calling to me from petals of voracious meat. Raw velvet with thorns who taste my blood if I try to hold her. She bows her head now autumn is near, so I steal my chance to cut and possess her to darken and dry in my room. Where in winter I re-kindle her past.

Sleep


Bleeding into the night


I wake to take part


In another day


Leaving a promise


To come home again


And fall into


The arms of sleep.
