These Sunday blues

 

Earth and existence fenced by headboard

and footboard

Queenly

yet contained

she sprawls

soft sheets carving grooves like sequoia

lifelines

A web

her breast marked by sleep

Printed

Dampened cloth like quitting, manifest

clings to her back

in veiled despair

A chrysalis

Stuck between self care and self hate

hips in horizontal sway

with her left hand

Running down her cheek that salty stream

brims with god knows what

just in time

She had almost forgotten how to feel

And so came to anticipate

these Sunday blues.
