ETCH A DREAM
(8/20/18)

end
of day

end
of light

finally
I lie
down

close
my eyes

right away
I see

not so
much
stars

but lines

nebulous
shapes

shadows

I notice
them

as I do
they
take shape

a man
in a suit
walking
toward me

a large
spider
encamped within
a sink
with dripping
faucet

me
behind the wheel
of a car
that seems not
to follow
my directions

I open
my eyes

blink
the visions
away

still quite
awake

I watch
the ceiling
fan

blades
circling
their orbit

wondering
how real
they might
be

the eyelids
exhaust again
to shut

I see
my love
whom I've never
met
in the daylight
