1 Poem by Michael Fadum

“Hey Sunshine, Stop Snoring!”

She sleeps in clothed sheathes
Blonde hair leaks out like leaves in a levy

She channels Florence
Having worked the night shift
Black scrubs replace a white dress

The charcoal cocoon
Hides her from the noon sun
Like a caterpillar curled up in down

Honeybees buzz
In rhythmic gasps
Letting the outside world know
She still breathes

Then I wake up beside her
And blurt the title
