the truth.


it is never endorsement enough
violent pieces buried within
soft folds of blankets, each night

she covers herself

for you, she rearranges the pages
stacks the memories and seasons
everything with just enough salt

she will never ask, for flowers

she watches the birds
singing what she wants to hear
through the open window

while you are asleep
