A Poster Falling from my Wall in the Night and Scaring me Half to Death

I am
Rising and falling
Over butterflies migrating and
Cups of bitter wine and
Strangers leading me through
Dark passages and
Spider webs and
Deer trails
And skies clacking in colors then

An alarm.
An alarming sound!

I wake and see a
Opening and
Moving for me.

I give a shriek like a train whistle.

And so die laughing.
