Raining in Rohingya

It took me some time, but in time
I shook the cobwebs away,
woke up to a Saturday or did I?

at some point someone points the way,
this way to the weekend.

I am as sure as I can be that my eyes were wide open
and I was
watching my breath frost on the cobblestones and then
the room shifted just lifted itself and moved several degrees from true
and if that’s true am I still awake, did I wake or am I still sleeping?

That aside,
my eyes are open wide and coffee is in the pot,
not a lot because she says, it’s not good for me.

but the dreaming bothers me
as if
someone’s sending me
a message
that I cannot decipher,
and they’re quite heavy
which is not a word
I use lightly.
