BEDS [Labrador to hide teeth and centimes]

Labrador to hide teeth and centimes,
for healing and work
as in a dream.
Primal claw feet
where we lounge, sprawl,
puff on cigars
slay ourselves,
admit curiosity,
grovel and prophesize,
heave and hove, dream
of paradise and his
path of opposites.
Evangelical mirror.
The mistaken bed, the wrong couch, the errata mattress,
sack of false moves, omission dock, forged levee.
Goose-shaped ocarina severed from a cold calendar.
A life sentence tucked under a pillow.
Cleft. Fissure. Chasm.
Deposit door.
