After Vivid Dreams Valentine

For a few seconds after waking up
I had no idea who I was or
where I was and I watched
feeling comfortable not knowing
and not feeling any fear about it
but then I remembered
the whole story up to now
so that later when
I found a worm drowning
in a rain-flooded flower pot
after watching it writhe
and wondering if eventually
it would swim to the side
of the saucer and climb
up on its own I had to
rescue it and put it
back up on dry land
to burrow into
and to live again
