insomnia

can’t fall asleep when I’m sleeping,

dim echoes of vivid dreams briefly encountered
and believed in, beloved in, awoke
me and left me
alone, the ultravivid clarity
vaporized by the thin grey dawn light,

and everything returns to normal.

breakers

starfish clutching to stones
in dark cold tides
don’t dwell on their
solitary lots–in life, in
tidal darkness, in
the buffeting clamor
of breakers breathing.
