February 16 – Give Me Shelter

Post It Note Poetry Feb 16

The roof above and the carpet below

Tell a similar story:

Cracked, lined, riddled with moisture

Stained, spotted and worn away

Peeling back to the roots of

Skeletal rafters and joists

This threadbare flesh of two hands

Cradling and sheltering while I sleep

  1. Nice twist at the end of it being not a house but hands.
