King Kong Crab
dreamed 2008/9/20 by Wayan.
We're showing off San Francisco to
the new girl in our sorcery school.
She senses (and thus, I suspect, may lure)
beings from other planes--though I'm unsure
whether they're animals, people, or
superhuman forces--weaves of pure power!
A shadow falls. Look up. Past glass towers
I talk with a classmate I long to know more:
small, lovely, brilliant. But shadowed by
that bold monstrosity, all we can talk
is shop: such inadvertent gramarye.
Turns out we both use a similar trick
to minimize (we can't prevent)
such hazardous breakthroughs of awe:
mentally, we fire-walk around
their outlines. Spirit-silhouettes!
We think roundabout them, yet
never think of them, and thus do not
manifest Things we might regret.
At least not often. Not fatally. Yet.
Here in the City, our caution seems right.
