38 x 75 inches

By Taylor Armstrong

I sleep in a twin bed
The same one I’ve had 20 years.

You sleep in the bed with me
And the ghosts of all the other men.

I say, “stay the night, for us”
Knowing you’ll never leave
If you close your eyes with me.

You say, “the bed’s too small for us,”
And I can’t help but wonder,
“Is it the width of the frame, or the crowd?”
