“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


I tied an orison like
a dream-
catcher
at the foot of my bed, like
a faithful
dog
guarding my thoughts as
I sleep,
so that I might not slip into
the fear
of waking up in darkness and
never realizing
it
