i rarely dream of people i know

 

in those occasions

i wake with the impression

of a love one or lover would be

i close my eyes and recall like a movie screen

the important moments

spoken messages

numbers

words written in gibberish

learning that only frequencies in sounds matter

i open my eyes with the valuable content

displayed on the ceiling

to decipher and foretell too

i awaken to my surroundings

accepting the fading of the recall

pleased with the bits and pieces

i re-member together

in my inner happiness of the affirmations

visitations, visions, building sub-basements,

subways, hidden apartment rooms

railroad tracks, passive gangs that guide,

lovers that hold, and new spaces

that let me know an end is near.

the Walk

 

beyond the scope

my cells center

prayer heals

i go lightly

to baba yaga

to the forest

to the waters

dropping regrets

as i walk

healing

along the way

along the way

i meet you

Choice

 

laid down late

laid on my stomach

laid on my arm

heard my heartbeat

what if this sound is the last thing I hear

what of my son

what is his base

I never want to make him cry

I ask my heart

to beat on for

i love and feel love

i recognize my choice in the matter

i choose to stay

long after his base

has been firmly planted.

woke on my side

woke way pass noon

woke accepting the rest

my heart needed to choose a new day.
