Beloved’s Robe by Christina Dixie

A Love Letter to Self by Christina Dixie

These dreams
slept
in temples-
west and east corners.
So my fingers,
dipped in oils,
woke them
and wrote 
a love letter.
They twisted
gray and black
frizzy feathers
over and under,
over and under
and rattled the roofs
of each temple,
until
these dreams
slept
no more.
