I can’t remember what happened yesterday

but i can tell you every detail about growing up …


I lived within the light,

connected to flowing creek water, golden

wheat fields, sour cherries, apple fights,

imaginary pirate ships in the trees,

races, games and laughter …


i moved through space devoid of

time …


next to the timeless past

‘real life’

is a parallel universe …

a linear river of time,

boxed reality

separated from the past

by an impermeable membrane

impossible to break through except during night sleep

when its rays bleed into my dreams like wispy smoke and

i see the light of two

suns …
