This Bedroom

This bedroom

I love this bedroom
with a single door
and dimmed lights
at my side.
A small bathroom
not far from the bed
and a lot of books
on the right.
The TV with silent images
and your expecting body
occupying the other half
of a possible paradise.

Mateo Morrison, Dominican Republic (1945)
