Lodestone

I wake to

your call

in the night

we lie parallel

I I

two, at 2am

asleep

your nose

tucks beneath my shoulder

I’m your lodestone

head buried, body pivots

north

to 3 o’clock

how can one so small

be half my life

how can one so small

rob half my night

how can one so small

take up so much room

in the bed
