I sleep best with the sheets tangled 'round my waist
And my feet poking out below
For who can dream with stiff blankets overtop?
I find I am stifled by
Neatly tucked-in corners and crisp folds
And prefer instead the nest
Of twisted covers with pillows strewn about.
Then, at least, there is comfort everywhere
And not just beneath my head
or stretched above my body.
Then, at least, I can worm my way between layers of warmth
and set my mind free.
