She dreams...
by Sharmagne Leland-St. John

she lies down beside him
her dreams projected
on her forehead
in monochrome
he sees her through
sepia eyes.

she dreams
ballerina dreams
she dreams of locomotives
and crashing waves
she dreams of footprints
vanishing like the prairie
she dreams of rain
she dreams of a lover.

she dreams he will
watch her forehead
and know exactly what she wants
she dreams of a tender man
his warm breath on the nape of her neck
she dreams of crickets
and a stranger with kiss-able lips
she dreams of archipelagos

he unbuttons every button
on her blue silk blouse, slowly,
it falls from her shoulders
and slips away
she wonders about moonbows
she dreams of black roses
and he whispers softly as she sighs
