Your Side of the Bed

It’s time to rotate the mattress.

Your side is well worn

from the gravity of heavy sleep

whereas mine has only the barest

outline, my small frame

pressed into it invisibly  . . .

–Excerpt from “Your Side of the Bed” in Hanging Like Hope on the Equinox by Donna Pucciani (Virtual Artists Collective, Chicago 2013). First published in The Christian Century.
