Holy Bedroom

The hungry bed waits for you,

with its sheets twisting and its pillows stiff.


Just take a bite of the apple,

let the juice run down,

dripping and sticky.


Warm milk in a plastic cup,

Just like grandma gave me.

The perfect temperature,

no bubbles or steam.


The bed is restless,

it wants to be full.

I cut the poached eggs

you watched the yolk spill out,

beading in small yellow drops.

Dribbling onto a spongy bed of rye.


Sleep my little angel,

tell your mom you are in good hands.

The bed has you now,

twisting its cotton sheets around you,

like little tricky snakes.
