Last night I dreamed about Doris Lessing 
She had very grey hair 
She was eating a meal 
I wanted to dance for her on the table 
I wanted to please her 
I wanted to be 
Everything she'd want me to be  

Tonight it got dark before I got home 
The pavement was shining with dirt and with rain 
I was carrying the day like a donkey uncertain 
If the carrot of evening  
Would help the day's load slip away  

There's a time at night  
When the space around you 
Gets so eternal you can't hear a sound 
No cars no lights no voices no bounds to 
Calm fears there's no choice in whatever you say  

I wanted to dance for her on the table  
I wanted to please her I wanted to be  
She would want me to be
