GRAY MORNING

gray morning
         I could be sleeping
                  if I'd stayed home

gray morning
  I would be sleeping
           if I'd stayed alone

 

  can there be a greeting?
  can there be a meeting?
           not just a yawning
           day just past dawn
                    on this gray gray morning

  can there be a greeting?
  can there be a meeting?
           like for a sunrise
           on a high plateau

 

the snow is melting
the sky is leaden

I think of my bedding
  I could be sleeping
  my eyelids meeting
           if I'd stayed home

not this sipping
                    of tea
while rain is dripping
                    outside

even the dog is napping
while daylight is wrapping
           grayness 'round my bones

but indoor light is warming
  me to this morning
           more than to a sunrise
           on a cold plateau
daylight is wrapping
           grayness 'round my bones
but indoor light is warming
  me to this morning
  to my inside waking
  my inner daylight breaking
  while outside a greeting
  outside a meeting

           on this gray morning

                    light dawning

 

 

but tomorrow
maybe
I'll stay home

 

tomorrow
maybe
I'll be sleeping

A dozen years ago,
I began to wake up
with word pieces -
words music, spoken word, songs -
in my head.
Escape velocity.
Echo of the echo.
Tank almost empty.
Can't cross the gap.
Welcome into my world.
