dreaming of you as silent film star
romantic and dramatic, marlene and lulu
art deco revival egyptian inspired
enthroned on a pedestal of midnight blue
constellations surround you like courtiers
flirting with you seeking to be noticed
or clothing of silk, velvet and diamonds
or magical weapons in your mythology
like orion’s belt around your waist
and divine twins vying for your affection
like incense from the dragon’s mouth
and libertine libations of aquarian wine
like a school of two fish in aquaria
and arrows of cupidity aimed at hearts
swelling with desire for you and more
swirling in symbols you remain central
to this cycle of dream time visions
and wonder whether you will be there
ever at all some time when I wake up
