Last night I dreamt
that I was naked; the night before, a witch,
terrorizing the townspeople, but just
misunderstood—people like us
just love things like that—
and tonight in the little sleep
I get, I want to become something new.
Maybe something with
sharp teeth. These days,
I spend the morning and afternoon lying down on a couch, arms open,
eyelids fluttering, trying to steer
myself to half-sleep so when I dream,
I dream of flight.
