IF I STEP OUT OF A DREAM

IF I STEP OUT OF A DREAM

If I step out of the dusk of a dream
does that mean that I’m a dream-like character
and that I infuse the quality of dream into this Ness?

If I step out of a dream
is it like opening a curtain or window
some kind of portal from thick into thin,
making thin thick?

Or if I step out of a dream
does it mean I move my limbs
languidly as though air water, like
a dedicated swimmer toweling off in the
moment and that my eyelids were gentle,
soft and slow, partners of something observed?

Could I understand myself–me being the spectator
of raw parts of my inner life–as the docile whole object
you see with behaviors characteristic of whatever
you say I am?
