our beds

the cat sleeps in the dog bed
the dog is sleeping in my bed

and she might as well – I can no more sleep than the man in the moon.
does he do that? does the man in the moon sleep?

or is it always the midnight shift for him
staring down at us

keeping his inconstant vigil
only one night off per month

now brighter, now dim,
watching us watch the stars

as they fall, the satellites as
they spin, restless, relentless as the dawn

that comes for us all
in the end
