An infant dreams

An infant dreams, asks questions such as

will the world be
a bed of softness,
of heaven reaching to an infinity
of warm milk,
white clouds
and gentle blues?

Or do red bottle tops
betoken sealed places,
anger, blood?
How may I reckon
the meaning
of my dream?

How know?—because
I am not yet born.
