Post-It for friday

Post-lt
for friday                                                                                                                                       Lorraine Miller

Remember to
sleep naked tonight
the kids
are gone
No
tiny set of eyes
or hands
will reach for you
in sleep
No
meek voiced story
or crazy drama
will penetrate
your own
Yes
sleep naked tonight
and remember
who you are
alone

This poem was published in the 1995 Issue of the American River Review.
