Busy dream night,
Most of it gossamer ethereal as usual.
Then, like a prodigious mammal in the Cimmerian pitch-black
Under my sheets, literally, physically, corporeally
While I was still in my dream state!…
I felt a man curled up next to me…
Substantially, mundanely, sensibly…
But he was not literally THERE.
There was no actual man in bed with me.
I didn’t wake up.
I just remembered it explicitly when I woke up
As quite an odd abeyance.
I think I know who it was
but I don’t know why he was there.
It wasn’t creepy, just surprising.
