How can I dream?
when all I am
is a figure in your dream

If I slip to remember
and mix it up
this is not dream

How can I dream?
when all this quality
belongs to you
creates you
possesses you

If I sleep
without you
How can I dream?

I discovered in the cupboard
where I keep my backpacking stuff
a torch which you strap around your head
it was a present but I never used it
so I take it out to Llantwit Major beach
and find a cave

I hate potholing            the claustrophobia          
but I'm bored            so I crawl          
on my belly            downwards
narrow tunnel            cosy          
sleepy            no air
must          sleep          
must   go    on
no   room   to
turn battery
