SLEEP BEHAVIOR DISORDER
after Jennifer Chang
Something in the bed goes
twisting around. Cat-space.
of dreamt fisticuffs, no
memory for it. Something
in the bed has found
rest by staying parallel
to the floor. Warm quilt, has it
jolts or cries? Sack of stretch. Pillow-
hush choking mattress-hush. Weave
and purr. Something in the
bed. Hypnagogia. I did not want
to mean that. Warm pajamas, have they
sleeper-song? Have they waking
dream? Sock-loss and preoccupied
seam, its fraying agenda. Some-
thing in the. Bed wrinkled and
somniloquy. I did not mean to
wake. Has it shrink and fade?
Has it twist and shout? A bristly
cheek, fraught paws, such
tender adjustment. Body-
and breath-hush. Do I predormitum-
cuddle? Do I suggestibility?
Something in the bed does.
