She Comes in Dreams

For even as the kingdom of God was inside her,
so was her second home:
that world she built in her mind,
a world of poetry, stories, fantasies, and dreams—
a world that was an escape from her first;
and she prayed that so it was written,
so it was true—
that the first shall be last,
and the last shall be first.
