Personal Warming

Heat visits me nightly.

It is unwelcome.

Doona kicked off followed by blanket.

Considering piffing of sheet i settle for

one leg poking out from underneath.

Water reached for in darkness.

Too early to get up i pull thin blanket up

and soften its prickly edges with sheet.

Heat encourages bad dreams to

dance around the corners of my sleep.
