A Sleepless Night in December

A Sleepless Night in December

Sinking

………..Waking….I startle….and reach out to you
………..Are you there?….You are.
………..I close my eyes and

..see a woman
.//..in a sequin pantsuit….stars in her hair
..//.her child….coming on the clouds
..//.falling to the earthburningmelting upon reentry
..//.the seas and all that is in them sing for joy
..//.the trees clap along
…..the hills and flowers of the field slow dance to all the fast songs
…..I tell everyone….your Uncle Glenn….Rhonda at the office
…..We have a party….with animal crackers and grape juice
…..then it is like we were….we are at the ocean
…..You there in the water….swimming like a dove
…..I follow you inand I am

Sinking
