Dream Journal III

April 12th

I wake up from a dead end dream—

trying to remember the last name

of someone I never knew,

trying to recall a recipe

for something I never baked.

April 15 -

Sweet Mistakes

Vance has an amazing relationship

with his voice, “Are we going to do this?”

he asks Ellis. Then out it comes, with

the force of all heaven and earth--

he sang our wedding song to us,

right there in the club at our table.

May 7

“Oz never did give nothin’ to The Tin Man,

that he didn’t, didn’t already have.”

It’s May.

It’s mid-May

It's after Lilac Festival, May 20

and still I reach for my gloves

to go for a walk.

It’s late May here.

May 28

I’m gonna love you ‘till nobody else

loves you come feign or come sigh.

Happy together in indecent weather

Oh, won’t you be mine?
