You Only Come To Me In Dreams And Only Sometimes, By Kathleen Latham

You Only Come To Me
In Dreams And Only
Sometimes
By Kathleen Latham

bobbing up and down
into sleep
up and down
into sleep

kicking deeper
to reach the depths
of memory
where I find you

among weeds of fear
and desire—
a bright coin
on the ocean bed

which too soon
slips
between my fingers
and disappears

Kathleen Latham’s work has most recently appeared or is forthcoming in 100 Word Story, Bright Flash Literary Review, Boston Literary Magazine, and Fictive Dream. She lives outside of Boston, Massachusetts with her husband and an ornery cat and can be found online at KathleenLatham.com.
