    & glistering in sleep,
    i awaken you.

    the true storm
    of the inner eye
    is coming
    & it's counting back
    all the memories
    that we had along the way.

    they melt,
    like apples in the pail.

    the heart
    skips in threes
    & i'm on my knees.
    i guess that i'm second to none,
    when it comes to second guessing.

    the hard hit of morning
    is my lonely arm.
    i feather the skin
    wondering how old
    the blood is
    & if it's ready to river out of me
    while i'm at it.

    there's a certain safety
    in solitude.
    a certainty in the number
    of seconds that pass
    like lions towards my light.

    the nut of isis
    grows thorns
    in the milky dusk of me.

    i'm only ever as real as i am
    when i'm trying
    & dull hours will be the death of me
    in dying.

    soft focus,
    i'm drowning
    in some dream of you...
