at night by A.J. Wright
published in Volume 2, Issue 2 on April 3rd, 1995

my young daughter always
kicks the covers off

as if to say
here i am

see the way
i can curl

and uncurl
during darkness

like those morning glories
above your grandparents' porch

see the way
i can toss and turn

like that beached fish once did
for you and uncle richard

as if to say
i'm only three years old

as if to say
pull no white sheets

over me yet
daddy
