I Can’t Get No Sleep

We lay as two spoons;
My back to you
It starts feathery, drawn
Rhythmic, predictable
Audible, but gentle
Until the twitch, twitch
A pause-
Before the whistling expulsion
After the long hold
I can hear it beginning
Fills up your cheeks
And, noisily, disruptively-
pops like a kiss
As it escapes.


Not a wink
And the sinking sound
Wavering in the dawnlight
Rolling under the fog
This morning breath
Baaaah steamdrills
Each toe individually wrapped
For the colourful unwrapping
Sweat, sticky sweet
Damp and unwarranted
Lingers in the sheets
You would think she was
Dancing under there
Instead of
Still like Winter.
