Editor's Note



I Know from My Bed
by Michael Lee Johnson

Sometimes I feel
like a sad sack-
a worn out old man
with clown facial wrinkles.
I know when I reflect,
stare out my window
at the snow falling
rom my bed,
my back to yours,
reflecting on my pain-
ignoring yours-
I isolate your love,
lose your touch
to another-
it is our bed,
not mine,
that I lie in.
