Drawn curtain day winding restless.
Cooing won't calm those crying
cradle pains - a side-wound slap.
Sleep teases with easy dreams,
nightmare halted breaths, going
under water in a vault -
and you and I wound tight against
the world, floating in the vast
expanse of black night -
both crying like babies.
