transitional memories/

©2022 Michael Raven

i have lost all sense
of the world outside
falling upwards and
i can't drive

no graffiti splashtag
trashvestible rustcluster
tarpblue cesspool
howling in the night

clickclack thunder railtrack
streetstalk shadows
watch for dogshit running
sick tan in the rain

i accidental follow
footprints in the rain
she dare not turn around
she dare not turn

...not turn around

real winter settles in
even streetblack snow
seems pure and i shudder
am i asleep or awake?

did i dream of you
in a pizza parlor
pale skin in winter grey?
or am i dreaming myself
awake?
