About Last Night…

Lying next to you
as we drift into
a gentle kind of blue

***

Falling asleep
with the lights on;
afraid of the day’s ghosts

***

Most moments
offer pain;
forgetting days without

***

This cat knows no pain
only the comfort
of sitting on my wife’s head
gently kneading her hair
which smells of fresh conditioner,
tropical coconut

***

Sleep will carry us away
to subconscious formal wear
sitting across from you
in a dinner party dream
digesting today’s gone guests

***

And I will end
this poem
with my first waking thought

***

I say I love you twice
at bedtime
because I may not be here
to say it when I wake.

  1. fucking love this. I cant even pick a favorite line….
    ok, since you twisted my arm…

    “Sleep will carry us away
    to subconscious formal wear
    sitting across from you
    in a dinner party dream
    digesting today’s gone guests”

    I love the playful way you carried this vision thru the stanza. just amazing…
