do you believe in always

do you believe in always

for Elizabeth

The sea fumbles its way to the horizon
while I stumble towards a void.
---Conleth O”Connor

the forecast said snow…
somewhere between memory
and oblivion’s mingling arms
the first threads of dawn
touched the nameless strands
of my perceived being…

i am the dreamer
and the dreamed
morning’s mirror
in the lingering perfumed
shadows of your
long darkness…
watching an angel sleep
