Going

that moment
when your bed has become so
comfortable
you refuse to
go
to leave
even
though you need to
use the facilities
or call it
whatever
you like.
a number 2
dump
release
whatever.
use those
words
your mother washed out of your mouth
with that same soap you
use to wash your hands
after you’ve done your
business.
but you
haven’t left
because you
can’t leave your
bed
as he
cocoons you in warmth
and even the pressure
on your bladder
is bearable
in comparison
to the
thought
of walking across cold
tiles
to sit on a cold
seat
and have the bright light
sting your
eyes
only
because you have
to go.
and really
it can wait
what’s another minute
of holding it
as you
steel yourself
for the chill
of the air
beyond
the sheets
and comfort
er?
but as you rush
back
stubbing
every single
toe
you slide back
in the cotton
grateful
the imprint
of your
body
is just
as you
left it
and there is a
residual
warmth
that lulls you back
to sleep.
even though
you had
to
GO
you came
back.
