Rockland

Since I got old,

It’s not easy to find

 

The rocky wastelands of my mind.

 

But as a child, I knew,

They’re right behind the sleep-locked door

To my mother’s laundry room, where

I just had to open

The right-most window with

The washed-out blinds,

Climb over filthy clothes and

Once-loved teddy bears,

 

Out of the frame and

Into the foggy day of

 

The wasted rocklands of my mind.

 

*inspired by my most vivid dream when I was a kid.
