night

At night gravity is 10 fold what it is while the sun's up, sees me roll and grunt on the bed, graceful as a disabled tank. I want to sleep suspended in liquid, like my baby gets to. I want to slip into clear water and float to sleep - so my shoulders don't pile drive into the mattress and wake me throbbing in the wee hours, so my belly doesn't shift painfully from side to side slightly behind the rest of my body, so I can close my eyes and feel beautiful, so I can dream. I want to slip into the skin of a selkie and drift from rock to wave, abandon human form, swim.
