That Hat

Keith Dodrill

Threads of consciousness woven gold
Spiralling fragments
Thoughts torn from sequences
Chaos and confusion
With no conclusion

Levels up and down
Depths of disturbance
Almost waking followed by sinking
Something winking
A piece of memory, perhaps
An experience from long ago
A smell I canít remember
A faded touch
Eggs in a clutch
Too much, too much;

Time has no foothold
Drips slowly from above
Like dew;

Collisions from days
This into that:

Her in that hat!
