i dreamed of you
and me
in some land where
the only words we understood
were our own

air, heavy and warm
covers the land
wrapping itself around us
tastes awaken
our slumbering

exotic spices make us
dreamy and distant
sleepless, fevered nights
full of forbidden
discovery accompanied
by bird song, foreign to our ears

and we
twined together in this
land of eastern dreams
feel home slipping
away into
