not now
i am too afraid
of dreaming,
if i do -

the tide
will recoil at
my touch
and then say, come,
come sleep under me,
look,
the sky is throwing
down its night
time sheets, let's go
grab that loose
gold thread and pull,
let's watch
the stars unravel -

i might have kissed
those feet
of freyas soft and gentle,
but you know if you wade
right in i'm
rough and heartless,
the planets will
align, and then,
three ghosts, one of them
my father, and there ain't
nothing holy
'bout him,
a starving dog
will run - there will
be red on white and i will
laugh, and i will stand
at the top
of writers block
and i will
throw myself off

(sleep please take me back i'm sorry about before)
