A Sweeter Sleep / by Britta Badour

Fall asleep with me?
Drift away
and dream of summer rain
landing on our shoulders as I'm
huffing halos of your name
Sweet as honey lemon tea
tease me from the tip of your tender
tongue to the tower of your
turmeric torso
Take a few z's and hit a couple
rounds of snooze for me
Let's rock each other's cradles and
lay idle mid-slumber in the
hammock of one another's arms

You are a daydream I wouldn't
dare pinch myself awake from
I am one blink away from a kiss
induced coma
