SLEEPWATER HORIZON
(1/13/19)


I dream
of fire

water

yelling

flashing lights
briefly illuminating
shadowy
surroundings

and mostly
I sense
a feeling
of extreme
confusion

of impending
doom

movies
don't usually
give me
nightmares

even
the most
disturbing
of them

but I was
glad
to wake
from this
one

and if
those thoughts
bothered me
so much

I only
wonder
how soundly
the survivors
can sleep

or the families
of the departed
