On Missing Morpheus


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Lassitude drags her bare feet across blonde wood;
+++++++mellow-beamed in milky, branch-broken light.
 

Sleep-splintered, draped in cotton-stripe fatigue,
+++++++++++++stalking the sink of a cushioned chimera,
 

she buckles instead to the barbed ruin of her companion;
++++++++++++++quietly cursing the brackish insolence of his grasp.

One response to “On Missing Morpheus

  1. “stalking the sink of a cushioned chimera,” You never fail to amaze with the images, and the comparisons you can draw Julie…ever so vivid, ever so original. And I know the restlessness well…been coupling it with the dreaded loneliness and insomnia for far too long.
