Eleven Pillows

Each morning (after he's gone) Eleven pillows Aspiring her eye To aesthetic beauty Is necessary ritual Before embarking On whatever trivia Or serious She must attend to Meanwhile Past his workday (as the hours wane) At around nine PM Her insensitive partner (having couched a bit after dinner) Fading quickly as usual Disports the eleven aside

And dives right in To almost immediate Morpheus On the morrow The ritual re-ritualizes He never learns The Haiko But no matter She persists After he desists And re-arranges Despite all What tenacity!

Eleven Pillows  

A short essay in vertical prose.
