Marry Me
a senryu sequence when I come late to bed I move your leg flung over my side-- that warm gate nights you're not here I inch toward the middle of this boat, balancing when I turn over in sleep you turn, I turn, you turn, I turn, you some nights you tug the edge of my pillow under your cheek, look in my dream pulling the white sheet over your bare shoulder I marry you again Veronica Patterson
