I - My Imaginary Friend

I wake up in a bath of sweat
 I am late starting my journey
 Weightless clothes hide my being
 Protect the skin from reality, my reality 
 The garage door shuts up in a rearview mirror
 There is nothing else but emptiness
 The rose bushes prune themselves
 For an artificial Californian winter 
 Dislocated trees pretend to whither genetically
 Along the street I slide encapsulated in soundproof
 I ride in a bath of distorted forms
 Cannot figure out why the street ends up in stairs 
 I merge in an one-way freeway with ends of marine layers
 Curious eyes greet somber, slow and mute police lights
 I am finally free to fly and collapse in the Pacific
 Slapped by wreaths with my name in purple 


A three year old with ash blonde hair jumps up her beach towel
 She runs towards the ocean in an excited déjà vu 
 I grab me with my two little hands and smile at my regenerated youth
 An obsessive dream re-occurring - our street ending up in stairs…
Again and again…

    This is deep. Some form of unexpressed angst finding its way into a dream in a series of symbolic images must be more common to a poet's heart. Well-written, Iolanda. How've you been?
