Remission

In fever dreams
The body
Solving problems

From twilight
Onward
Having to
Believe in
Twisted
Recompense

For dreaming
Of dreaming

When it was
The clouds
Our only
Companions
For that

After that
Sort of love
All you could do
After dormancy
Was look up

Thank goodness
The sky is so close
Closer on some days

Withered expectations
Like dried flowers
Promising
A skeleton
A sketch
Of something
Remaining

False hope
Is a false
Companion

Maybe invisible
Without Bones
Or structure

Weaving
In between
The material
& tangible
But not quite

Still powerful

When night
Comes
Dreaming about
Sunlight with you

Day doesn’t
Come
That day

Fever cold
Dreams
Night visions

Remission
