Kiss Sleep Goodnight


the plunge was taken

wet lips to forehead

remember waking by yourself?

when light tongued the wall

lick marked the window

yellow saliva on the foot of your bed?

no matter how many times

you changed the sheets still that smell

of kissing goodbye to sleep

rock a bye dreaming

because it doesn’t matter if it’s yours

mine, the way the earth breathes out

at 3 am and saunters towards morning

the 2 way breath hissing spindrift

all the ways we travel will lead us here in the end

together, apart then together again

dark, light and dark again

the inside outside of my mother’s body
