nequient

corner chair
lamplight shining
curtains open to cloudless starry sky
in the shadowed evening i sat
book in hand

eyes tired
mind tired
soul tired
three or four pages
and i slept

dreaming of what awaited
could i only escape this dead box
that does nothing but keep out the rain

and in that dream
a map unfurled
a path to where i want to live

every detail outlined
in perfect logic
the who and where and how

i woke on fire
and ran to the window
to gaze at the stars
awaiting my arrival

there were no stars
there was no sky
only a mirror image of the room
blotting out the waiting world

and as the dream dissolved
map crumbling into hourglass sand
i heard the fates laughing
