dreams so wrong


never thought
of wishes
bad memories is all

when
words
carved of wood
petrified stone
perched
on oak branches
stop
the dangling swing

push
her legs, pumping
of sprouted wing
the sun made
all the difference
in a light rest
lying in a dark tomb
of books

she turned the pages
gently, torn
worn of ages ago

remembering
the sewn sleeve
of a dress
was it hot?
cold?
most mothers know
the weatherman’s secret
so predictable
to forecast the future

her plaster-of-paris
dreams
some how, gone wrong
