Slow moving, a partial dream
unwinding in its own way,
we slow down, we slow it down,
make sure we see —
look, here, now, it passes —
open it, to understand,
to isolate the exact point, and how,
the smooth releasing
shifts into jarred, frayed, jagged.
We go in there,
at that point, slow it down,
make it still, wrestle the shadow,
listen there.
