like sailboats on the ocean
with their breasts pressed 'gainst the sea
that glide past the horizon
to soft islands far away

in the hollow of those vessels
from long darkness had and hewn
swaying dreamers nestle tightly
like the air inside balloons

see the spider and the mermaid
exchange secrets near a web
sewn of lace and ivory passion
to rend memory from the dead

dreaded tiger turned to petals
sallow witches casting spells
kiss the murderer in his madness
sending demons back to hell

but, oh no, my dear sweet love
you are angered, rightly so
for i cannot take you with me
'yond sunset where i go

so close your eyes, dear, close your eyes
and all numbers count 'til through
and when you wake, dear, if you wake, dear
if you- if you-
