Spreading Dreams

I sleep during daylight hours
dreaming with my eyes open
reading you
calms my beating mind
and sinks raw desire deep
into the rose-colored marrow
dark into the night
I lie in bed awake
rippling velvet nuances
blanket my flesh
I am at peace
body relaxed
knowing your words are
spreading dreams

Triptych Closing on Mockery

is it possible to reinvent one’s self,
when creating the initial concept was agonizing
does renewal spring from where the difficulty began
or punch through the point of least resistance
do we buff the scratches out of existing relationships
or pray old human contracts voluntarily burn

can we plummet deep examining our own eyes
accepting inward mistakes and outward imperfections
daring
newness to rise up like the phoenix
if we make this leap
will you allow us to land elsewhere
or
catch us if we fall nearby…

we’d like to believe anything is possible
