#2,511 This bed is not as broad

This bed is not as broad as
my last one –
less room for
a revolving cast –
No more
my French lover on re-tied
[scented by sweat’s
offloads] –
not here –
this a
place for recovery’s clutch
& dreamt release
[not sex –
no bedewed libretto] –
mis-direction works well –
less quick acts –
no report
of my talking in my sleep –
no morning critic to hear –
to bear –
I lie solus
striped shadows] shutter-
tipped ‘gainst early rising
