To fall asleep
in the wooden drawer
under your bed
would take a good deal of skill
(never mind the rosy socks)
Both that of a contortionist and a cat
(maybe not so hairy).
hearing you mutter in your sleep, or hum maybe,
to feel you flail above me and roll over,
to know you’re just there.
I love the imagery here.
I love the idea of fitting into a drawer underneath the bed of someone you love just to be close to them.
I loved it.
