You could have a big dipper   

Dreaming a Poem by Robin Wright






chase the stain across

the paper with pen

a silk scarf around

your spaghetti strings

read from ghost encyclopedia

bleached words scraped

from the sky


carry on or stop

bribe or beat

scratch concrete

for a chord of clarity

best to the front

last long and prosper
