Laius Watching

Oedipus has been my
least favorite folklore dream:
the old man cut down by someone
rude and young who used to be weak.

Seeing him groveling
is what I block from my dream eye,
the triumph of youth
hand in hand with death.

I burst awake to find in the real world
protection from the danger of fantasy.
