refuge

I was asleep when you called last night.

I had just left this place and gone to another,
somewhere without electronic devices
where odd wild creatures made soft sounds
as they went about their business
in the trees.

They were fearless.
Nobody could harm anybody there, and they had
never known danger.

The place exists only
in my imagination so that’s just
the way it is.

It is not subject
to revision.
