City Scenes XXXIX: Reflections of Self

(dis)quiet dream

over city and 
tree, river 
and street, 
neon and gas;

under clouds 
I rise, breaking
the barrier-mist
of sun
of heaven
of universe

of every imagined
pathology of 


over city and 
tree we gape 
at our bodies 
in slumbered 
repose, and 

shudder at 
the vision 
of self.
