At times while I am sleeping
I drop into
lucid dreaming.
and I will be so positive
that I am in
my childhood bed
and my father's
motorcycle roars
down the block
then quietly
thud, thud, thuds
to a halt.

The garage door opens.
He walks
his war horse
into its stall.
But before I hear him
close the door,
I fall asleep again.

Or
my brother and I
in the new house,
and we're the big kids.
We're tuned to a frequency
only he and I can hear
and we are always
on the edge
of laughing
but we can't
because we know
Daddy will be mad.

And the spring wind
whispers through
the dining room windows,
mingling with far off voices,
one deeper
the other faster,
clipping along,
a repeating song
on the radio.
It's almost off,
but not.

The air is
clothes line clean,
I breathe in
the lawn.
And I have
absolutely
no idea
I should
be savouring
every breath.
