When Phantoms Sleep

 When Phantoms Sleep


Because I did see you last

on a street in Providence;

red bricks rising

in the gray air,

like Lovecraft snaring us

together in his smoky dream.

We were to walk together

in Lowell, in its columns of night.

We were.

That meeting still came to pass,

but in mist of words;

our stories always tell true.

Our story rewrites until waking,

but never waking.

That is who we are;

no shades cross between us,

we are the ones never waking.
