I dream a lot at night, a lot by day.
Time has no meaning here, where I forget
To mark the hours, where I sometimes let
Whole weeks go wandering freely on their way.
Yet even dreams keep count of moments flying,
For when the bolt slides in my window and
The bowl of soup is thrust into my hand
And I prolong my life to keep on dying.
Then I discover, shaken from my dream,
How one feels at the end, who has been bound
And set adrift above the thunderous sound
Echoing from Niagara. In midstream
The water hammers at his dinghy's side.
The current surges on. His hands are tied.
