We Dream the Dream Dreaming Us
by Brian Tierney
You say we should wait--
It must have snowed all night or season,
we don't seem to know
and there isn't a clock.
I say then
The page is blank outside.
we haven't heard in days.
There is not enough time for a whole new plot.
Inside, the wax dilates.
We sit in the dark
and are separate,
but looking at each other--
