Liminal

I glide from one episode to the next,
my role transfigured from scene to scene
in perpetual subconscious invention
until a somber beam of light paints the wall
and reminds my other self of unfinished business.
I rise, stiff and uncertain,
remembering when, in childhood,
waking life was an extension of the dream.
