underneath it all

I know the gossip well enough
so as I fall asleep 
I know

every body could be these bodies
so... easy and insignificant
in their yearning

always welcome under blankets 
with whatever remains 
of love 

their kindness like the glance of 
streetlights in my childhood 

where some other child might lie awake
amazed at how they cannot 
fall asleep
