four poster – July 30


four poster. tall, finialed

emblem of life and love

through our years.


we brought the children

forth upon you, told

stories, snuggled.


and now I smile when

I see you decked in

mismatched pillows


of our shared difference

and joys, two heads at

ease upon your breadth.
