Settle

I pulled the sheets forward

tucked them into the sides

stacked all the pillows

and settled the cotton tide,

 

then you fell onto the bed

fidgeting your feet,

rolling hills in the sheet

left basking in sunlight,

 

until tonight,

when I saw where you’d laid

and thought I’d never seen a bed,

better made.
