consciously out of body

Posted to Action Poetry

everybody is asleep
everyone is sleeping
once candy h. told me
there was something
better than sleep &
explained the secret
formula for launching
consciously out of body
spending the night not
in dreams, but instead
freefalling through
stars & planets, across
treetops & mountain peaks
one of these nights i'm
going to give it a try
& if i do, that's not a
ghost floating over the
bed where you lay naked
it's just me without
a body, missed my chance
again, didn't i? (wisp/gone)
