In the haze
Before sleep
I softened some
And let myself
Not in any one thing
But just at last
As me finally
Again to feel
And then that night
I dreamt that you
Came back so sweet
Once more to me
I woke up warm
In early love
And dark morning
Confusion then
A wrenching heave
A single tear
And I remembered
Why my head
And heart and skin
Instead have chosen
Layers thick
Of anhedonic steel
And agnostic
