fever(ish)

huddled in a ball
with my little stuffed cow
it’s bedtime
but neither of us
feels like sleeping

the ceiling
seems so far away
the wall is uninviting
my eyes feel dry
as my head is stuffed
with steel wool

so tired
i cannot sleep
so hot
i feel like
i am freezing

come closer and closer
closer still
let’s cuddle
until the storm breaks
i need you so
