fearsome dream


Fearsome dream: I'm cocooned below, facing heavenward,

          but my face no longer senses nor melts

the frozen snowflakes that once were my pleasure.

          Now those flakes swirl aimlessly, unfelt in the blue-black,

uncaring night of winter, barely touching my grave,

blown about by the frigid January wind -

          dead to those sensations, I lay hard, cold, rotting.
