Moonlit grassland visitations
Waking werewolf incantations
Lullabies of laburnine
Songbook of the saturnine
Forgotten empire alterations
Atlantean life-force palpitations
Shapes begotten from the steam
Of transcendental gypsy tea
Agreeable gods with clouds at their chest
Exhaling into the sails of the blessed
Escorting ships beyond destiny’s door
Lest they awake upon alien shores
Green-eyed sirens affixed to the sound
Singing of ship rats and pharaoh hounds
A thousand beginnings fresh in their wake
Trilobite tide-pools and lunar moth lakes
Sleep, my child, unwind your verve
And notice not as ghosts observe
Your mother cannot guide your quest
Instead awaits your waking breath
Grasp with lily palms the reins
Mischief flowing through your veins
Mind you as the moon besets
Sleep remembers, and sleep forgets
