5, 7, 5

 it's dawn and hailing
I'm soaked yet climb into bed
you say I smell good

insomnia ends
our breathing instantly syncs
Keith's TV blares on

push snooze two more times
the blackness of my eye fades
everything takes time

I sleep until nine
sip cream and coffee with Viv
a fresh week's routine

slow stability
sprouting from the grey ashes
quiet contentment

Autumn- My 2 year old head-butted me at 2 a.m. He was sick and didn't want to go back to his bed. He fell to the floor, mad at me. When I went to pick him up he jumped up at the same time I was leaning down.... it was bad. But surprisingly after 8 days you can't even see it now.
