a small but significant victory NaPoWriMo Day 1 Carpe Diem poem

a small but significant victory

Feverish fingers held lightly
as sleep ambushes
your damp pinkness.

I make vows to myself
to grab tomorrow and throttle words from it
(to do this every day for a month)

To feed the part of me
that devotes itself to your easy laughter.
Lost to illness for now.

I compose a small, short victory
of twelve lines
as you sleep and twirl and sleep again.
