In A Basket

byRandi Grail©

Come distance, come dreaming, come time upon time.

Come, collect in a basket woven
with ranks of solitude sobriety,

me, and what else you need
for your wanton variety.

Come distance, collapse,
fade away,
coexist with closeness,

before we lose it
like we always fear
but never really do.

Come dreaming of pledges,
the ones I will scream
in your name, in my dream.

Come dreaming of time upon terrible time
of returning, release and reward.

Burning for this
and returning for this,
to strike on a chord

and surrender myself
once more.
Lost, now collected for you.
