Opposition and Sister Squares, Chris Gavalier

dreams and visions and other acts of remembrance

Jocelyn Ulevicus

 

 The idea of an imaginary life has 
 always been with me / my dear mother 
 taught me in my sleep / how to float 
 between light and atmosphere / where the 
 lavender flourish, my fantasy place, where 
 moss can be pulled from my body / cleanly 
 and clearly the conscious refusal to face 
 the story whose ending is unknown.
