daily, you snuffle and snort yourself to wakefulness
too much breathing for two tiny nostrils.
your fingers grab my hair, you cling
and watch the bottle being made; your rite.
you laugh in the back of your throat, all kkkkkk
your legs kick like a thousand crickets.
you smile full into my face -
your eyes are like the night sky, eclipsed
clear and dark and filled with light.
you sleep upon the world, its queen
your limbs and lips uncurl like petals.
