Dream I dervish around morning sun
elastic circle dance seduces
whirlpools me twirls

I crash into other dancers
steal nuggets of brilliant tunes
hear babbling verse strange words
everything full of frenzy

I draw near to her fire
feel molten arms beckon
but I’m heaved away
pulled by unleashed wildness
my head swivels bobs
legs kick fly

I don’t want to wake
pray to orbit again again
feel her scorch
dizzy with acceleration

don’t wish to wake
only gallop magnetic accelerando

don’t want to wake
alone in tomb of my room
trapped in a place
where filaments of memory
are hazy mixed with fable

don’t want to wake
abandon infinite cosmic pirouettes

don’t want to wake
into fierce cold morning
