In my dream my father and I lose our way
and have to turn around on streets that vanish
beneath our wheels as soon as we cross them.
Our destination looms larger the more lost
we become, as if we should just jump on,
but the nearer it soars, the farther away
we sense ourselves to be, until our fear
guns us forward, into what we do not know.
