April 14: Sleep

/~I love to go to sleep ~/ (104/365.2)

Sleep

I love to go to sleep,
when bed takes me like a lover
wrapping my limbs in
cool linen, soothing
the fretfulness
of day glaring like
the Cyclops’ eye
in a forehead
of furrows.

    Erica Jong is one of my all time favorite poets and authors. I just absolutely adore her. Her “Fear of Flying” inspired me to be confident about being a smart woman and to make no apologies for having a brain and using it. She also is responsible for my falling in love with literature – I owe my Hemingway and Miller addictions to her. 🙂
