#1. Laying Awake

August 27, 2009

Laying awake
Early morning gentle joy snores
Resting presleep
Predream

Time travel
Everynight the good night
Remembering the ancient faces
Childhood fears turned comfort
Receiving the conciousness
Of my mother’s face
And the way she held her hands
Palm to palm
Backwards
Watching.

Laying awake
With my life
Ready to go.
