Where Do You Come From?

by Christine Yuan

 

I come from the valleys and the gullies of warm bed sheets

That wrinkle like the furrowed brow

Of the old wise man from the village of Dreams.

I come from the mountains of scented floral fabric,

That wind and weave in a convoluted frenzy.

I come from the delicate folds of Reverie,

From the birthplace of whimsy,

And the hometown of frivolity.

I come from the affectionate plains of Slumber

That those weary eyelids effortlessly succumb to.
