nightdream

it looks to
coincide with
stars and galaxies
and things
of that nature
all aligned and
insufferably perfect

heavenly things;
objects of breathless
beauty

you know the golden face
that rises like Ra and steals
the air from your chest,
heaving in delight,
left to the early surgeons
who remove
memories and
store them in
stone vials for
the next world.

to this,
an afterlife with the
beautiful one.
