I became awake from a very dark place
A patchwork of fear, of poorly conceived ideas
With a blister of water, the mark of working hands ready to catch or cut
The senses aligned, the animal urgency
And voices picked up flowing over the static, late, quiet

I became awake
Fingers are open, eyes they are open
The firing images, an orchestra of scribbles
The guts of an engine, the veins of a leaf
Light on to paper, exposed
A filament in a bulb, up above or in the ground
Together we are magic
Together we are dreaming
Together we reach endlessly
The center of a seed, so full of possibilities

I became awake, I thought I was sleeping
But I was only forming a structure with no ceiling
With words like a runway, a cloud of a person drifting away
I was heavy, but now I am light
I was heavy, but now I am light
