i'm sorry for the bags under my eyes,
i was awake all night trying to synchronize my breath to yours.
and in a way, it was still resting.

the sun rose and birds started to sing,
i watched the window turn
from the midnight to the morning grey.

practice is a heavy song -
its heartbeats and steady symphony
have a way of swaying and encompassing you.

i let you have the good pillow.

i wonder how you laid when your body began to change,
where your chest was too sore to sleep on your stomach,
your valleys and mountains and great plains spanning further,
the bed becoming smaller,
the weather getting stronger,
but it's not a crisis, it's mother earth.

we shift at the same time,
i follow the softest lines
my legs cross and i rub my feet together.
my fingers trace the waves in the air,
inhale gently - barely there -
exhale like a tide to drift away.

now an incandescent glow kisses the flesh above the blanket.
it's warmer now,
you turn over.

i let you have the good pillow.
