I straight-up treasure this  "circumstantial" collaboration I did with the writer & MDiv. Caroline Devane, a friend who defines the term. Through some synchronicity,

I fell into talking with Kristin Prevallet, ed of DB's TrancePoetics folio around the time that Caroline and I were both leaving indeterminate poetry messages on each other's voice-mails and I had developed a strange and sometimes resurfacing habit/pathology of drawing and writing in my sleep. With Kristin's encouragement, we made this poem. And the recording, below...
