East End Press


like falling through a cloud

      
Sometimes

when I wake up

it’s dark

where am I?

sometimes I know

and sometimes

I have no idea

so I let the night spirits wrap around me

and they whisper to me

Don’t think ….

You will remember …

I lie very still

and

then

suddenly

like falling through a cloud

I know

I

AM

HERE.
