I’m participating in WordPress.com’s Writing201: Poetry that runs this week and next.

“Make shapes with your poems. Go crazy with enjambment. And pay attention to the animal inside. Hello, Day 4!”

                       this morning

                        curled up
                      snoring softly
                on the bed      (where he's 
              not allowed         to be) tucked 
            beside my                  imprint 
         (because i'm the 
         one who let him 
          up) i leave 
            heading to                  a job
               i hate               wishing i 
                could stay     with him 
                        curled up
                      snoring softly
