so there was this
dream I had last night
that I was lost in a labyrinth
 and was trying to find you
 amid a web of walls 
that disappeared
and because I couldn’t find you
I kept palm-prints on
smooth white surfaces
which recorded them in blood
so I would not search
again and again
for you behind
the same old walls

but the palm prints disappeared
seconds after
they appeared
quickly, like the ending of dreams

so there was no ending
to my search for you
and no beginning
to my finding you.
