The Voyage of Sleep
This bed my nightly raft to sail a thousand seas
descending into darkness the davit lowers me,
cast and swept, ripped and hauled beneath the waking world,
through silver blue translucent light some other plane unfurls.
Mirrored scales reflecting cool peaks of milky foam
my cells mitosis multiply renewing then regrown,
from the healing of a timeless womb cocooned in vacant space
we come again though all to soon delivered from that place.
