A Note from Me at 23:
a found poem
In this dream, I examine a leather glove
to see how it’s made. Will I unmake it, or make more?
I examine the patterns on Emily’s cape. I want to imitate her good taste.
I look Joy in the eye and say, I want to know you like a man.
I chew bubble gum and call my friend a wench.
I’m scared. I’m tired, but I can only go to sleep. Can’t I rest?
Is that why I want you? Because I’m all alone with these dreams?
I love to sleep, the way my dreams take me places,
the way they take me in.
Writing has always been
the answer. Dreaming
