Deja Vu All Over Again

Am I a cosmic dream?

Looking out is effortless
inward vision is another matter
because in my warrens of neurons
echos my lost child’s wail

Searching I stumble
down blind corridors
and row upon row of locked doors

What lies behind them?
Vestiges of past lives lived
or memories etched in DNA?

Simultaneous realities
both known and not
familiar as Schrodinger’s cat
half dead, half alive
and like me
frozen for fear of looking Now water - I am
nine tenths submerged
in the quantum sea’s
imaginary waves

Old memories drift like fog
become dim and
melt at the edges
and too soon I am absorbed
into the ocean
of all the dreams dreamed

Deja vu all over again
