i remember mother

admiring songbirds perched

beyond the bedroom walls

visions dance as i awake

an estranged sunbeam enters through

like the curtain was hungry

to sip the wind

i feel like a child today

shying away greedy onlookers

i fold up my intellect’s jaded edges

and put him away for awhile

so i can see with my heart –

i stay in the alien’s land

and try to comfort the sore spots

in my chest

i remember mother
