What did I dream?

(poem 5 of 32)

What did I dream?
I woke up from a dream, fury in the fingers
Jerusalem, an old bride, is wedded
To me
Light sown upon (the roofs of) the city, filters through the slots of (closed) shutters

We, a group of poets, speak to God
With the face backwards Isaiah and Jesus
With the face forwards there will be a hole in the sky, light will wash us
