The ship went down

in my dream

and I hummed,

remembering lush green fields

but I also knew

in that dream-aware state

that while wandering

in meadows full of bees and flowers,

I had dreamed of the sea

drowning in both places,

wind and water…

waves lapping at my hips, feet, face

taking my body

because it is only mine to borrow

for a little while.
