HUB 333: What do you want to see today? — 23 January 2012
The day is nearly done.
What is left of it…
In what is left,
I want to see music transformed into dreams
I want to see a future
Or the relaxing of that muscle that calls for one
I want to see my soft hands grasp something tender and dear.
I want to see the back of my eyelids in a restful sleep.
I want to see light in the dark hour—no.
I want my eyes to adjust.
I want not to need to change where I am
I want to know how to be happy in it.
I want to see deep breathing and sour smells of sweat soaked clothing bring a grin to my face as strong as the quiver they brought to my thighs and tension to my neck and across my chin in working my body earlier today.
I want to not lie alone—
I want to see myself not alone, lying here alone.
