Day Two #NaPoWriMo2019 Poem Three

By Alex McGehee

 

In daylight, a slip is a white-out.

In darkness, a slip is a black-out.

In day, I dream.

At night, I live the life too painful to be awake to.

My dreams and life, inside out, as if to protect the delicate stitch-work of reality,

I wear my dreams on the outside, and live my nightmares in my head.
