Screw yourself
into the Northwest corner
of your bed so
that most of the weight
from your body
rests on your heart:
now, you know,
you have a heart,
and each dog's hand
you shake will tick --
your immune system
staying near & deer.

when i laid my head on your lap you caressing my scalp in a scritchy scratchy way
when i crawled into bed hoping for a spoon
when you'd reach out in your sleep for me to move closer
and now and now
