escapewake

this momentary morning belly warmth
cat face bump alarm clock
and the request for food
but i have fifteen minutes
and the alarm clock isn’t speaking

i roll over into absenteeism
abandoned during my lie in
the scab of a dream
picking at it
though it is barely realised

we play on the outskirts of sleep
we wrap ourselves in the warmth
and a feline cloud on our chests
and a small warrior feline at our feet
cleaning toes
attacking blankets
