A curtain of you

This is how Thais falls asleep:

She lays on her back
between my legs as I sit on the bed
her own legs above her head

She pulls off her socks
her hands reach into my hair
forming fists

pulling me forwards
until her legs are crossed over her
resting on my chest.

She pulls my hair around her head
hands weaving –
she's casting magic
she's conducting an orchestra

She's safe within a curtain of me
she's breathing slowly
she's asleep
