A portrait

walls red
warm
and rich 

a home packed
into
10 X 10

the half naked man
sits 
on the bed.

checkered
plaid
quilt in a pile

he sleeps this way
tousled
between sheets

and has just awoken
from
the fear of being

without. 
the
weightiness

beginning 
to 
crack the floor

sure to drop him
down
down down
