recurring daydream

a white nightmare
forces a waking state
but even “larks and catydids”
must dream

an ambition
is branded in the fat
and failure – the water to cool

dour desires
leave imprints on my eyes
(these nooses in my irises)
still, i

build tokyo
in my mind’s eye; i try
and get the architecture right
and can’t
