...said a virgin to a womanTo Laura Fletcher's previous piece      I Give God an ErectionTo Laura Fletcher's next piece
You used to be my carpet,
a way to warm and soft the floor.

	conceal nudity
	between floorboards,

That was you.  And I,

	crawlspace, dark
	cobweb presence

That held air as a prisoner.
How should I represent
that light from the north window
when, when I once drew the
curtains wide, lit me up?

And one side of your body glowed.
And a patch of carpet warmed.
