What am I doing in this bed?
I belong at the mouth of a river
Or exploding a lab
Not here! Anywhere but here!
Me – ME in a room with a humidifier running
Alarm set for a day gig
Four door cars everywhere
And there aren’t songs, but there is soap, and chatchka in the bathroom
While I’m old enough for mild gum disease and comforting a small kid
having a nightmare.
