Dreams from The California Notebooks, 2015



last night I fell in bed
my body loaded

with past worries
each limb lead

I placed my hair
nicely around my head

shutting doors and eyelids
I entered sleep

many worlds were there
I was light going places

there were miracles
even healing and justice

done I played them over
and over going back as

many times as my rest let me
when awakened I was no good

I could not return to life I clung
stoutly to each dream in a doze

in a willingness to believe
the alchemy of transferring

dreams’ revelations into
the actual daily thinking
