June 29, 2009

I am, on this crisp
December afternoon, still
in bed.

The sun, midpoint on its
high arch, bleeds
through my curtained windows
a milky light.

Still buried beneath
blankets I will pretend
it is the middle of night

that the sky is black
and bare, and this light
is the glow of a messenger,
hovering quietly,
outside my unsuspecting, undeserving house.
