To sustain a narrative that accords
with all my sensitivities, this door
I claim in the lucid dream I’m dreaming
powerful imagination teaming
wild I ground my fractal grows I’m sound
and I’m alight, scarlet throated hummer
in flight. Finches school opens ear’s delight
a big bass leaps the ripples reach the shore
one marathon completed and now more
intensity of living heats my core.
The tactic of deceit exposed must die
along with every other patent lie.
It all starts here and now nowhere to flee
no victim/perpetrator bond. I’m free
and as each wound arises, I dive deep
her planetary sentience shapes my sleep.
