Vision (by Valjeanne Jeffers & Quinton Veal)

Listen:
Last night
I dreamt
sensous and terrible
of a man who cherished a woman
with every beat of his heart
he listened carefully when
she whispered love —
sexuality innocent
as untouched snow

And of a brother
who plotted the destruction
of them both

His spirit was redeemed
by glimpses from the
past:
offerings
children
embrace

they speed together
united
across time
across galaxies
to fight…

Is this memory
from my collective unconscious
a prophecy of our race
divine murmuring
or only a dream?

You tell me
