Secrets in the Dark




Secrets in the Dark


Tell me what you dreamt,

while you were unable to speak in the dark.


I carry the insomnia of martyrs.

I hear sounds heralded,

lost in chaos.

I heed them against 

the quiet march of dead sons 

in the hallway.


What were your impressions carved

within the sound sleep

of your high road?


I’ve asked you to tell me as best you can,

asked you to unveil,

what must be remembered.


What did you dream in the dark,

that puts you at ease

upon your foggy shelf?

Perhaps that’s a question

for another conversation.
