Shape of Sleeping (Day 239)

shape of sleeping human being 
soft warm curves and bones
conform to flat hard concrete  mind 
likely dreaming  imagine  suitcases
rolling luggage wall  odd aimless 
walkers  hair ragged  eyes glazed 
like nothing can help believe 
what lies this narrow kind of town 
tells  a patched stone wall  wobbly 
one-lane street  the bridge is slow 
quiet place for sleeping under
baby-blue blanket  to lay down and 
rest now  once night cold and dark 
falls under there safe is conditional
