The mundane weariness
slips easily into dream state
where adventures become awake.
Last night I changed color — blue to red to green to yellow —
and passed my sleeping
delighting at the technicolor skin
that morphed with each moment.
Action pursues me only in sleep.
In waking I am solid, three dimensional
and happy to return
to a predictable world.
