Stain

Poem By Zoe Schwab

Drift into my dreamy mind,
a dark muddy current.
Spill onto my white pillow, so that you may
stay sweet and sticky in my hair,

Seep through the cotton,
staining the feathers
like wine on a tablecloth
or blood on a T-shirt.
Drench them in
red red red.
If I have to wake up,
it will be in a puddle of
sleepy fragments,
a shattered mirror,
with you shining in each shard.
