Dreaming, 12 February 2011

I laid a bag of my things on the ground
in your yard
and covered it with a cut tshirt
and began watering your lawn.
When I lifted the shirt
(a while later)
from the ground
I saw that it had been covered with hard roots,
sprouting from the bottom like little trees.
You came up behind me.
Then I held it up for you to see
and the roots became a part of me,
under my skin
and you began to pull them out
one by one.
