For Rama

For Rama
Writing is slower than dreaming
It is awkward and adolescent.
Dreamers hold out their truths to each other
simply, fluidly.

Today I am a writer looking for words that
might catch the edge
of the wakeful world of sleep.
One night I will dream with you,
and tell you what I really mean to say.
