Where You Sleep

in my eye

Where you sleep
eyes penetrate thin sheets
eyes rust with the sweat of fear
through city curtains
into bare rooms with cords tightening
around imagined necks

the notes materialize
like sanguine schoolgirl chatter
with hatchets buried in virginal text
naked with denial and dew
every vein open now to view
hallways constrict and eyes follow

where you sleep.
