Burning the Baldwin Street House (a dreamwalk)
by Alison McKenzie
You came to me in a dream
And told me that you'd never loved me,
That you'd only used me.
Your long hair was short,
Your face wider, and more aged.
It didn't taste too bad,
That bitter medicine.
I took it like a person
Who no longer needed a remedy.

"your long hair was short" I like that - made sense to my mind's eye.

Strong well worded reminder of how those who are or have been closest to us visit in our dreams. Perhaps the mad bomber was just the instrument to confirm what your subconscious already knew and was telling you.
