For a long time I would go to bed early.
hoping that I would return to the sensual dream
certain that my dutiful rest would be rewarded,
but instead I awoke inside something else entirely.
Some say dreams are a product
of what the brainbody is working on:
I know that the sensual place IS unfinished business,
(for crying out loud!),
Yet always, I return to exams and lectures
that I'm not prepared for,
people looking at me, puzzled:
"Are you still here?!"
I thought I'd finished with that business...
