You don’t know why
I stream you in my dreams.

No I don’t think you know yet
that I want you to be near me

When I have you
looking at me, and

listening when I spout
a word, I think

you know I want to breathe,
and breathe me a kiss, because

this silly whale is
lost in a canal, but

Venice would be
justice, if we met

— Douglas Gilbert

  1. This is lovely. I think it would be very hard to be a whale trapped in a canal or a stream. I loved the spout a word, and breathe me a kiss. Streaming in dreams sounds like smooth sailing…

    1. Thanks. This has an odd drift to it, but I think it works OK. I’m not sure about the “justice” in the Venice part … more like deserved or something…
