dreams 
after Kristen de Kline

dreams wake me
before the alarm
most mornings

they are the current
jolts my spine
special delivery

sparks jump synapses
blur images to manifest
what seems the speed of light

they run around
the waking mind
just these few moments

die down before
my pen can cage
them into words

retreat to back
of head, yet still may
leap up unexpected later
