disquieted and distressed

honey
if
you want
to
get it right
in
the night
don’t go talking
’bout
what’s wrong 
in
the world
or
whose done
you wrong
at
some point
in
your life
or
who
you’re
gonna worry
’bout next
just
empty
that worry bin
and
see
and
touch
your lover

 

 

morning light…

morning light

like a lover’s kiss
dawn’s light enters the bedroom
our new day’s awake

our new day’s awake
moving quietly around
not one sound is made

not one sound is made
as it touches each closed eye
like a lover’s kiss

it was so damn obvious…

she sat
carefully analyzing
her dreams
according
to
university standards
using
a dream dictionary
she kept
on the nightstand
just in case
she had
a meaningful
experience at night
she began
considering
the underlying
events
hoping
to
unify her body
mind
and spirit
through self-exploration
hoping
to unlock
the latent agents
of those dreams
maybe
arguments
with friends
lost lovers
fears
as well as
an array
of approach-avoidance
possibilities
only
to find
a half-eaten piece
of pizza
beside
the bed
