Life is but a Dream

Life is but a Dream

caress of the membrane,
pulsating,
my brain needs to float
away,
past this cage,
take some time to
go blank –
let the white noise like
sensuous fingers of smoke
enwreath
my face,
glittering with each nerve ending’s pecking kisses,
sweet tingling transformation:
I am a doubled edge,
coalesced.

and the vibes course through the veins
but this haze
is the only mirror
that remains.
