Falling Asleep - Poem by Sheena Blackhall

Two drifting feathers,
Eyelids of a child,
Two moon-shaped sickles of repose
Down-flutter dreams
A snow white swan Armada
Blown across the lake of infant consciousness
A trembling Theban rose

Ah, but the adult variety!

Psyche's but a poisoned pool
Hades-hot, celestial cool
Crack the mirror surface see
Bliss and bestiality

    I hope sweet dreams kept the bestiality a bay to allow the bliss to stay. (Report) Reply
