“Change,” she says to him.
“Yes, change,” he replies
placing his head upon
her shoulder, “change.”
He speaks quite freely
of love inside the dream;
outside, he awkwardly
watches as she speaks.
Her hands and eyes dance
between her words to
open a space of refuge
for his heart to hide.
Outside the dream, he
again desires to dream.
(September 2012)
