“Sleepy Kisses”

Sleepy Kisses

If she could choose her pathway home

she’d take a deftly patterned poem

with sentimental, loving tone

as full moon shone, as full moon shone.

Pitch her soul’s song among the stars

sweep over cleft; run past the bar’s

musical chart . Her avatar

strum from afar; strum from afar.

A splendid way to die is this:

leave world a song none wants to miss.

To die while dreaming was her bliss;

somnolent kiss; somnolent kiss.
