THE STATE OF YOUR BED
By Judith England
"The state of your bed
is the state of your head,”
She, a Zen priest, her very being projecting
My own bed that morning looked like the scene
of some terrible struggle, or perhaps
alligator- or demon-wrestling
So, it’s morning now and I set about to smooth and tuck,
pat and fluff, pressing away with my hand
all that battle left behind,
In hopes that the state of my head can become
the state of my bed.
