If you dream like the blind…

You’ll see the Czar’s embroidered pillow
Gold and red by candlelight

The dreamer says: I can smother him
Just watch…and Boris Gudonov’s clock

Ticks just off stage
Like Braille

“C’mon,” says Carl Jung,
“You did it,”

“We gotta get back to the minotaur’s house…”
But the dream goes on

Alexander Palace
A hive, a loom

The despot growing cold, face up
Windows open

One can fly straight out
