Wake Me

Josh Fisher


(piano staccato)


notes fly through my hair

float onto my dry head

burrow to my heart

strum soul’s cello to beget

a chorus of boyish angels

wet from rain

in sandman’s grit

birth harmony


climbs my back allegro

flutter above my face

entrances mind’s eye

to take a dance


dandelion prairie girls

dressed virgin white

in swedish meadows

shepherd melody


(open eyes)
