Almost every night
Another dream surprises me
From somewhere in my mind.
Plot lines, scenes, details
I could not conceive awake
No common moistnesses
Nor frights beyond belief,
But (for example) I seem lost
In architectsí daft designs
That rival Salvador or Escher, so real
I know just where I am, so false
Theyíre clearly nothing
I have ever seen nor any place Iíve been.
So potent Iím left shaken, breathless,
Falling, terrified, elated, saved,
Relieved that I was only dreaming,
Relieved the dreams
Are only my unconscious brainís delight.
