lying across the bed in
a nest of pillows in a
place beyond my headache
you wake me up to ask
if we're going to sleep
this way & i lunge up
slam off the tv
so irritated & later
i awaken to see the dog
wallowing & scratching on
my robe & i feel true
murder in my heart for
the first time in a
long time & i just wish
that for a moment in my
life everyone would leave
me the fuck alone so
that i might be able to
see what was is happening
because if i could i
might figure a way to
keep it from happening
