“Our dreams are a second life.” ~Gerard de Nerval

Parallel Universe

A poem by Jullianna Juliesse

hand fog mountainIn this bland sunlight,

this routine
and hostile familiarity–
the days start
and end

each the same,
woven together, a stream
of placid contempt.

The beds to be made
pleasantries exchanged,
the daily sounds a hollow hum–
bees on the hydrangeas
china rattles in the sink,
and at five pm, I pour a drink.

My parallel universe
is bathed in fog
enclosed by cloud shrowded mountains
reaching protectively,
up from the sea–

and it rains
for days,
washes me clean

and yours is the hand in mine
every word new,
spoken for the first time.
