Dream Walk

The mushroom / In the forest
On the mountain/ Wilted/ When I touched
Was a dream/ Never touched
Kept down/ The trail/ Dried leaves
Snake promises/ Bare ankles
Kept moving/ Through/ To light

A clearing/ Where red poured/ In my hair
Down/ Something from sky/ Seen—
A couch house planet / Growing down
Took last face/ Raised my squinting
Goblet to sun/ Died/ I with light all over

Was a dream there/ Became real
Further down/ Fallen oak/ Plank rope
Tight-walked/ Out to ivysea
Below’s crowd/ Of air/ A penny splashing
After breath/ In the wrong lung/ Went
I died/ Was a dream/ The third time
