Poetry from Emily J. Cousins

Perfect Dream Decoder

I’ll tell you what we’ll do
we will string a cord from your brain

to the televisions
switch on the monitors one at a time

watch the slow motion
hooves of your night horses

turn over & over
the ground will give crack

beneath them
I will finally know what it means

not like when you tell me
I will finally know what it all means


Emily J. Cousins lives, teaches, and writes in Denver, CO. Emily’s poems have appeared in, or are forthcoming from, Denver Quarterly, The Laurel Review, Copper Nickel, Bombay Gin, Hobart, The Collapsar, and elsewhere.
