Going to Bed

by Nicole Ann Gatchene

A smatter of kisses,
Fabric skins falling,
A slippery procession.

A song begins,
(a duet)

Throbbing with heat,
Starting at the top,
(shoulders)
Easing through,
(down)

In unison,
Outlining, touching:
Every note,
(Every curve)
Every key,
(Every turn)

Tumbling into bed,
A tangle of limbs,

Together:
humming,
singing,
resting,

With a flick!
non-light.
(Inner incandescence)

Cocooned in blankets,
Honeyed dialogue,

Which flows into…
Slumber,
(unconsciousness)

A pause,
On realized dreams.
