The days insanity has come to an end,
Your body is weary,
Its defences worn down to soft grain,
Your head pounds with harmful influences,
You lay it down to recuperate,
Upon your factory of dreams,

Unforeseen the silence crawls over you,
And with it the demons multiply,
Salivating over the cracks in your psyche,
Malicious maneuvers in the dark,
They would ravage you like countless hypodermic needles,
Save for the defence resting above your bed,

An arcane symbol from the first nations,
Molded of willow and spider sinew,
Spindly weaponry of Asibikaashi,
A conduit through which your dreams can be mobilised,
As an aetheric crusade against the night,
Old magic to protect you until the morn.

  1. Yes “Old magic to protect you until the morn.” And the feather of life’s breath to breathe in the dawn.

    A beautiful piece of writing. Lovely reference to the spider woman of ancient dream catcher/ Ojibwe sacred traditions. Nicely done.

  2. I like the lines, “You lay it down to recuperate / Upon your factory of dreams.” Good stuff!
