<160 new wife

lie down beside you & give a bruise to my forehead
the light gauze of a mosquito net not romance, but necessity.
“querido” three hard consonants make a soft word

*

in the morning i feel awkward leaving the sheets in a muss,
have to be told several times the maid will take care of it.
will she read the folds like tea leaves?
