Awakening

Having woken up again,
my hair still uncombed,
but having had a shower and dressed,
even if still without a jacket and hat,
because the first actions are helpless habit,
I only know that I am once again
on the edge of the bed,
still encircled by dreams
that, if I look at closely, I feel,
will prove not to be dreams at all,
but the sediment of experience.
