Mean Dreams

Mean dreams
Of a sea of light
Glittering and glinting harshly
At the edge of my sight

I try to rise,
Only to find
I'm stuck here in a glinting place
Too much sun
On the sea of my Being.

Suntan oil,
Must needs be called for,
Or maybe
Just a swim in the sea.

Fishes nearby,
Too bright to swim
So they sink.

Poised on a diving board,
I plunge to the depths,
There to find the gloom I sought.
