Indifference in Dreams

He must have hated her and longed for her
Am I pure
Are you pure —
The fantasy of rescuing the father
will occasionally
have tender meaning
Something about wanting the father
for a son
nor Jupiter
nor comeuppance
toward the chore of immortality
the whore meets the mother in the mirror
and claps, cheers   I found you
at last I found you
having always longed for you  (new you
and hated you
Papa, look at my shadow-
mask I've made of the satisfactions
you must have longed for
and hated     too

Am I pure yet
are you pure
reconciliation /
will to have  a tender meaning
