Regular Days

Sunlight befriends a digital stream of
virtual heavy lifting, the meat of work devoured;
tasks fall like pistachio husks.

Night shadows a stream splashing
the bowl when the hours are shy
and don’t care who you are.

I prefer the water, the house breathing,
and the beckon of hollow cocoon, warm as secret skin.

rumpled bed
