somniloquy

  It keeps building
              & I keep
        swallowing my spit
        even   though
                I notice the taste
                is metallic/ like blood
  Have I been biting my tongue?
        Have we spoken///
                 have had conversations
                        while I’m asleep?

         If it occurred more than once
              I want to know where it is you go
                   when I open my eyes|

             If you die in your sleep or
                because of a stroke
                  I hope you’ll visit
                    just to kiss me goodbye

          Do you hear me?
                Are you responding?
                   Did you plan on it?
                      Am I just dreaming again?
