Cozy In My Bed

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

Haunted by the utterance

of M(eye) 2nd Husband

“Cozy In My Bed”

was all He wanted

as M(eye) Daughter lies beneath

a faded pink cotton blanket

probably bought from Sears

She said it smelled like bleach

and She was comfortable

so comfortable

while Eye lie beneath

The Portrait of Darkness

M(eye) Greatest (and only) Figure Painting

with The Light of The Cape Light

Shining, Blinking, into My Room

Our Bedrooms are Our Sanctity

Please Don’t Mess With Them…
