but to this day imperishable

a found poem

by this time
it was February
and although
still shaky
I knew
I had emerged

into light

I felt myself
no longer a husk

but a body

with some
of the body's
sweet juices
stirring again

I had my first dream
in many months

but to this day

with a flute in it
and a wild goose
and a dancing girl

Found in William Styron's Darkness Visible: A Memoir of Madness in which Styron writes of the passing storm of his crippling depression.
