When Creatures From Your Dreams Convene

Though they may perch upon
each other for a moment
or brush by each other’s eyes
through silence in the silky air,

when creatures from your
dreams convene, they rarely
know who’s there. They glance
or take a whiff and then

descend into another almost
solo reverie. The devilry
of dreams is that they’re always
almost solo. They may permit

a touch, a breath, a gaze from
something other than
themselves but mainly if you’re
China, they’re not Marco Polo.
