angels’ feathers are in high demand these days (day one)

angels’ feathers are in high demand these days

 

i imagine death to be like a long uninterrupted dream to make up for all the times i was suddenly (and rudely) awakened midsentence

but never during the nightmares

of course

 

right before the climax of every story i never got to finish

and every sexual fantasy unfulfilled

that i could never revisit

no matter how hard i tried

(i’ve nearly mastered the art of appearing to be sleeping

through all my attempts)

 

it’s why everyone says

rest in peace

because we do

 

heaven has every bed imaginable

but a shortage of pillows

from all the forts everyone keeps making
