After the dream about the midnight transformation.
After the dream about the speech at the funeral.
After the dream about our mad concupiscence.
After the dream about our mad concupiscence.
After the dream about being sick, singing with vomitus.
After the dream about the animals. After the
dream where it was all alright again. After the dream
about your return, the sun behind your head.
I wake and I wake and I wake and the old stubborn
world is a cauldron and the old stubborn world
is a cauldron of sleep, where, perchance to wake,
I dream all this again and again and again. Amen.
