One Lay Down

One Lay Down

I pretended to be one for whom
The food and bed were blessed
Until they were.

Say only the grace you can pray for and get:

Ask for courage and character.
Ask for a sign:

I saw the short nightgown, green as a mallard’s head.
I saw the Sign of the Shining Bed.

I had the little autism
Until one lay down.
