Dawn Amato

(of love and spaceships and you)
I dreamed I saw St. Augustine, Alive with fiery breath I Dreamed I Had a Girl in My Pocket I Dreamed I Married Perry Mason I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night, Alive as you and me I dreamed I had gone to that city That city where never comes night I dreamed I was trapped in a miniature golf course Last night I dreamed I ate a ten-pound marshmallow I Dreamed I Moved Among The Elysian Fields I dreamed I killed God and woke up I dreamed I saw a mighty room, The room was filled with men. And the papers they were signing said They'd never fight again. I dreamed I already loved you. I dreamed I already killed you. But you rose again; another form I dreamed I died, ended up at the gates of Heaven I Dreamed I Was A Ballerina Recently I dreamed I talked to you. You were in the desert, and you said That I would never want for love, I dreamed I was a butterfly, flitting around in the sky I Dreamed I Was in a Hollywood Movie I dreamed I played basketball with Michael Jordan Last Night I Dreamed I Saw My Mother Young I dreamed I was being crushed by a lot of snakes I dreamed I could fly and got away from all the horrible people I Dreamed I Was St. Francis in My Maidenform Bra Last night I dreamed I tried to kiss you. I very much wanted to. But I finally understood that you don't love me ...not like that. I dreamed I saw Maimonides On the downtown train Fighting with a homeless man I Dreamed I Was Elvis I Dreamed I Was Walking Into World War Three I Dreamed I Was An Eskimo I dreamed I lived in a castle in Spain I dreamed I had an interview with God I Dreamed I Lived Like A Princess In Rome I dreamed I was there in hillbilly heaven Oh, what a beautiful sight! I Dreamed I Lay Where Flowr's Were Springing Last night, Last night I dreamed I went to. Manderly again I dreamed I was an astronaut who landed on the moon: I dreamed I walked in zero-g but fell to Earth too soon. I dreamed I saw a million angels Coming forth to rescue me I dreamed I lost my teeth I dreamed I was a gypsy riding the land With a tambourine and a gypsy king Last night I dreamed I had insomnia. I woke up exhausted I dreamed I was Jesus with amnesia in a white desert, cold, barren DO I DREAM HE'S STANDING BY THE DOOR I dreamed I was a sailor I dreamed I was a mermaid On an island I lay in a mystical bay,: In the dream I dreamed I was dreaming. Yet I thought in the dream that I dreamed I dreamed :I dreamed I crouched within a circle of stones I dreamed I was a goldfish Then I dreamed I kissed... Then I dreamed I kissed...I dreamed I threw someone out a window and when they hit the ground they shattered Your reverence, I dreamed I saw a pond which was deep in the middle and shallow by the shore. It was filled with all five kinds of lotuses, I dreamed I had a girlfriend She called me honey I dreamed I was cool I dreamed I had a boyfriend He called me dear I dreamed I was beautiful I dreamed I rolled on the ocean floor I dreamed I slept on the ocean bed I dreamed I could hear a train whistle I dreamed I was dying I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly I dreamed I was flying Your reverence, I dreamed I saw a golden plate worth a hundred thousand pieces of money. People were holding it and coaxing an old skinny jackal to urinate ...I dreamed I owned two chimpanzees, and that computers were alive and had sprung arms and legs and were trying to catch me. I dreamed I stole two old ladies' purses from a bar bathroom I dreamed I was Princess of Bombay Inspecting my army one Monday A thousand men came marching by Each looked like you Today I dreamed I was in the middle of a volcano and instead of burning I was drowning in the lava. I dreamed I was a sly red fox and I was in a big blue box one day I dreamed I was walking along in the dark and was all of a sudden surrounded by dogs, I dreamed I saw the silver spaceships flying in the yellow haze of the sun I dreamed I became a bird Where was the voice of the bird in the dream? I dreamed I was I dreamed I was a shadow I dreamed I lived I lived beneath the burning I dreamed I was I dreamed that I was gorgeous I dreamed I stopped; I turned around, I thought, "Why am I leaving?" And the dust stretched on before me Soft as breathing.

For Marilyn "Shadow" Dammann, why did you leave us, bereft without you.

Paullimo, when you posted the poem I wish you also had posted my dedication to Marilyn since it goes with the poem and echos the last two lines of the poem.
