iPhones and elves do – so they say –
although it is a marketing tool
for finding words and phrases
to construct the unusual.
Where sorrow and regret are vivid emotions,
what’s dreamt functions only as awareness –
seeing dolphins as lucid swimmers
brings transient joy, and then there is all that
falling and falling and falling. Oh, rock your
babes to sleep / oh, rock your babes to sleep
for vigilant dreams as your musings.
In the Dreamland Adventure Encore
you’ll hear again how what went before
was the initial selection of inspiration
behind those bedroom doors: birds that fly
in the room arrived by their own journey.
