On The Absence of a Signal

Charme RobartsI was dreaming I think
Running west to east in the city
Pony tail flying — the best part, right?
Ahead the traffic light is stuck on yellow — don’t stop/ don’t go
Exhilarating!  Must all things be one way or the other?
Decidedly not

I was dreaming I think
Running north to south in the city
I can see me coming from the other way

The traffic light ahead is also stuck on yellow — don’t stop/don’t go
Will worlds collide if I stop/if I go?
Do all the rules apply when you are dreaming?

On the soft edge of awareness where dreams
Raise the windows and come in
We awaken to this reality:
We get through life largely without ever knowing how
The uncertain yellow is lit by the sunrise
We run by its light
This is faith in progress
