Waking, Walking, Singing, in the Next Dimension? 1979 by Morris Graves
via Magpie Tales

your road hugged

the shoulders of your
dreams and visions

you sailed along
wings silently gliding down
the nature of things
when you woke
you were hatched
blind and flightless
your senses twisted
tested, resisted.
then trusted
your path cleared
to mingle with limitless skies
free as a bird

ascension

one last broken
word
one first bite of
skin
let heaven and free will
ring
emancipation

thunderclap mistress
thirst obscene
lips parted
full
dripping sunset nectar
the moon is gold
my eyes are green

the world is radiant
jasper
the ceiling endless
aquamarine
i have bled into the river
weeping
it knows my name
