Laura Grace Weldon
Fog As Visible Dreams
Mysteries flicker under each tender eyelid.
Become mist. Pass through walls.
Crowd the street, stories in symbol
that linger over a neighborhood asleep.
Houses and mailboxes walk
toward my headlights,
ghosts stepping into form.
I see each thing clearly
only as it passes by.
