28th Birth-Night Ride


Sleep awhile,
Wake up.
Butt aching,
Still sleepy,
Loving the
Exciting ride
Through dark,
Sleeping world.

Adjust position,
Butt no longer ache.
Read Alice Munro,
Eyes shut,
Sleep again,
Never deeply.

Bumpy movement
Never shows up
in dreams.
No dreams.

Dreams come later.
Unfamiliar, rural town,
Wee hours of morning.

A dream? Awake.
Ridden train all night,
In Virginia,
No longer far
From where I used
To be.

Light in sky
Means morning,
Light in sky means
Birthday greetings
