We took a holiday from the cold
stoicism bred into us over generations
and jumped with cavalier abandon
into each others’ dreams where
we secured passage to stations
never visited by anyone else.
We found warmth among the fires
burning at those depths, illuminating
desires awakened in dreams
we share, and though our sleep
must end we’ll jump into vacations
as often as our legs will let us.
