Blanket

Two turns and you’ve
stolen the rajai.

It is not so much
the cold I mind,
as that the privilege of
cocooning,
enveloping,
surrounding,
a sleeping you
is given to a faded,
threadbare cloth, which,
suddenly seems to me,
rather like the marriage –
stained, smelly and in need
of a thorough scrubbing.
