DREAM WHISPERER
(1/31/19)


"Pat"

I hear
the voice
just clear enough
to wake
me

the sound
is so soft

so near

that as
I open
my eyes

I expect
to see
someone
next
to me

then
I remember
that I am
quite
alone

an empty
man
in an empty
house

I wait

I listen

I wonder
at the
source

then
say my name
again

aloud

to break
the spell

to clear
the psychic
air

to fall
quickly
back to
sleep
