Of Beds And Such

What is a double bed?
A place where the dread
Of what comes after this brief life
Is momentarily lost in the arms of mistress or wife.

What is a double bed?
A place where the lone head sleeps
And sometimes weeps.

What is a double bed?
A place of joy and pain,
Where we return again and again
Until we are slain
By the final sleep.

(“What Is A Double Bed?” can be found in “My Old Clock I Wind and Other Poems” by K Morris”, which is available here, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0735JBVBG/).
