i recently started dreaming again

the deaf man can read
the lips of the waitress
except when she says
"how do you want your whiskey"
"how do you want your whiskey"
she tries to write it on a napkin
nerves trembling her hands
later they are married
in a bed on an island or peninsula
they wrestle and sigh
"what happens now" she says
"a dolphin jumps into the bed"
and then a dolphin jumps
into the bed, dappled gray
and bewildered
