After a Long Trip

Let me make a lap for your head
And scratch your scalp
Put your cold fingers on my warm hips
And snore–
I’ll untuck the hemline of your shirt and tuck in my hand against your belly
curl your chest hair between my fingers
And rest with you
Coax the bear’s growling deep sleep
Until the warmth and weight of you
Is comfortably entangled
Kiss your lips
And we’ll both fall asleep with the light on
