I’m kidding. I like your sleeping face. Being alone in the house
Walking in a day dream
Knowing when you don’t know
Waking when you’re sleeping
You know I can’t see my face?
I’d hate for you to remember
What I am destined to forget
So I am staying in this day sleep
A shadow half remembering
Finding all these fragments of scripture
Write them all down. Piece them together. Pretend I am an answer
Look what a false self can be so lively and seeming sunny day !
It is all illusory
Each shadowed back and ticking hand
I’ve told this story so many times
Will I not wake up until I stick the landing?
