Poem - Deportment

The poem “Deportment” is about the revelations of dreams. The definition of the title is ‘a person's behavior or manners’. I put a normative spin on this meaning while waiting to dream again.


Deportment

When deportment slips away
behind the opaque wall of sleep
revelation is the gift
awareness treasured when I wake

only moi is there to see
when decisions are made plain
I reflect on how I feel
interacting with the world

the facade is left bare
revelation of the inner self
surprises at random times
garments taken to be worn

the apparel I desire
is embraced with rapt joy
patterns not from waking life
colors bright upon the eyes

if I'm lucky I'll not forget
these quick glimpses behind the scenes
what could be if I'm set loose
embracing essence oh so true

now deportment must return
displaying manners for the crowd
for a time this is OK
I'll slip away on pillow's face.
