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 we should wait, I trust you. 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 wait. and are separate, but looking at each other-- Brian Tierney is the author of Rise and Float (Milkweed Edition, 2022). A former Stegner Fellow and the recipient of the 2018 George Bogin memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America. He lives in California, teaches poetry at the writing salon.
