afternoon dreams, with fever

that apartment, all brick and lofted to the tip
of the roof
that motorcycle (ride softly and carry
a big key)
that horse in a trailer, impatient for hay and
a bucking run
that water making an island of the expensive
the landlady decked at last in blue chiffon and
butterfly embroidery
wake up, wake up, wake up - to put out  a fire
while asleep (hurts)
