The Gap Between Your Dreams - Poem by Douglas Scotney
Re. space and time
(more the latter, perhaps)
and the use of 'often' and 'frequently',
when transcribing a text
I substitute the five-letter adverb for the ten.
There is consensus
that both suggest regular recurrence
but the fiver does not stress
the degree of length of the interval between
to the degree the tenner does.
Whether in space or time,
the further the gap between, it seems,
the less you shall use the tenner,
the more shall it be the fiver
that modifies your dreams.
