A Dream Of My Father Poem by Rusalka Slawin


A dream of my father
Works its way in rivulets along the pane
Of my day

I cannot stand still long enough
To meditate against the glass
And ponder

But move caught
Unfree even in full swim
The dream

Its rivulets like nets
I know not how
To break away

And if I did would not
Know where to go except to rage
Back into sleep

Finding my father alive in the inerstices of my brain
