Bed

05 Dec

 

What sort – the elegant, the sturdy, the contemporary,

Which one?

 

The sort where birth is facilitated and the making,

The sort where you can raise the pillows to a height, rest your head, and maybe die,

The sort that holds your dreams if they are good and rejects like spam nightmares

The sort that comforts even when you burn and twist and turn as curtains rise, signaling despair.

 

That sort.

    A very interesting idea. I recently read a book of short stories where the common theme in each story was ‘bed’. Great job.

    Oh, I DO like this one–how much for the one that rejects the nightmares as spam, & keeps the good ones? And do you have lay-away? (pun–that’s why you voted me “versatile”–har har har!)
