Past the border of my dream

The shadow of a morning glory

Had darkened all these ruins

What intrepid wind

Carried the morning glory seed to the land of my Nod?

Beyond glass gates of dream

In the bottomless marsh of mirrors

Wherever I had taken a piece of myself

A morning glory had sprouted

Forever pouring into the void of my soul

And in the sound of its blossoming

I was forever dying in myself

The veranda roof caves in

And the morning glory twines about all columns

What intrepid wind

Carried this morning glory seed to the land of my Nod?

The morning glory germinates

Its stem rising out of my transparent sleep

I was in a dream

Flood of wakefulness overflowed.

To the view of my dream ruins I opened eyes:

The morning glory had twined all about my life.

I was flowing in its veins

It rooted in me

It was all of me

What intrepid wind

Carried this morning glory seed to the land of my Nod?
