How It Goes

In the dream, some say:
“Keep your chin up.”
Others say:
“Keep your head down.”
I nod and shake my head
simultaneously — in this dream,
everything appears to be true.
I may be at Morning’s Gate
but to me it’s still the night.
What appears in the dark
can be a door to the light.
When I walk through that door
I’ll forget that it was ever there:
no door, no me, just light.
Nothing to open, nothing to close –
what stands between us is only us,
we’re made of light but dream
in the dark – isn’t that
how it goes?
