Burning Man 2011 Photos by Shane Butler & 3:15 Experiment Poem: What Beckons

3:15am
Toni’s on Turk, SF, CA

From deep sleep
the alarm beckons

I scramble to obey
to do its bidding

The dream so real
so complex moments before

has all but whispered
into the foggy depths of night

It was warm & pleasant there
and I’m ready to scurry back now

c. Gwendolyn Alley
2011 3:15 Experiment
