A Pillow Case of Mistaken Identity



While he snored through tinkling wind chimes,

I awakened quite vexed,

Reeling from nightmares

Burning tangerine like the summer sun,

My rollers askew on the bed,

Cheeks fused with our wet spot.


Long I lay nude beside him,

Hurt and perplexed,

Struggling to recall the last time —

A distant rhapsody from lips to limbs —

That he’d shuddered inside me

Without uttering her name.
