Written 2008, 2009, somewhere in there. I might revise it, after closer inspection. We'll see.




Five in the Morning

I dream of shining fish in a murky river. Of collages in the radical magazines.

 

I dream of slender mysterious poems whose meanings are not found in the back of the book.

 

I dream of the face of God on the number 80 bus.

 

I dream of cool Septembers on the last day of August.

 

I dream of significant anniversaries, of lavish expenditures.

 

I dream of waking up to a dark and quiet apartment.

 

I dream of Adam's ale and the matutinal cup o' joe.

 

I dream of mirthful commonwealths where ebullience never ceases.

 

I dream of distant sisters who learned how to rhyme with April.

I dream of turmoil. I would much prefer to dreams along your lines. The second dream is one with which I identify.

I really like your last line here too. All poets are dreamers I think.
