(1)Inside Out By Diane Wakoski
I walk the purple carpet into your eye
carrying the silver butter server
but a truck rumbles by,
leaving its black tire prints on my foot
and old images the sound of banging screen doors on hot afternoons
and a fly buzzing over the Kool-Aid spilled on the sink flicker,
as reflections on the metal surface.
Come in, you said,
inside your paintings, inside the blood factory,
inside the old songs that line your hands,
inside eyes that change like a snowflake every second,
inside spinach leaves holding that one piece of gravel,
inside the whiskers of a cat,
inside your old hat,
and most of all inside your mouth
where you grind the pigments with your teeth,
painting with a broken bottle on the floor,
and painting with an ostrich feather on the moon that rolls out of my mouth.
You cannot let me walk inside you too long inside
the veins where my small feet touch bottom.
You must reach inside and pull me
like a silver bullet
from your arm.
(2)A Dream Within A Dream by Edgar Allan Poe
Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow--
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand--
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep--while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
i really want to give you more but the word is limited.
so i give you the web.
