To Tyler Clay's previous piece To Tyler Clay's next piece
I wake in ruptured dreams Trailing like breath In a cavern. - Reality comes with gasps Like a sideshow With that little man clicking and describing - I hold my pillow's waist Whose flesh reverts to fabric. - Her face - her body - Her hair that flowed like dancers Under water Swimming away Until I lose hope of catching up. - I woke in embrace Like I hold my eyes watering And drift myself back Contented and deceived Nestled to sleep firmly in her arms.
