“Tiring of language, the mind takes flight”
– Jim Harrison
She tries to find a comfortable position
To sleep. Pregnant with Meaning,
Logos feels her growing belly.
She is off-center
She wants to dream unburdened –
Relieved of the back-aching litter,
Pupae, embryo, or
Whatever dark brood it is
No one asked her
If she wanted to foal,
If she wanted any part
And squalling creation.
She wants only to be dreamless,
And, most of all,
