Passed Bedtime -9/12/2010


a night
that could have used
slowly daytime strangled

sheets that could use changing
smell of a shared bed's discomfort
sweated through and tangled
stray hair found on the pillow

piled beside
spare cushions
some borrowed
none necessary
except for decorative aesthetic

room suffering excesses
of cleanliness
a neatness
that could use more interruption
more clutter
less floorspace,
a privacy too complete.

this room could use more sleep
now there's too much noise
outside the door
that didn't close properly

as she left.
