Pillows are the footnotes of

thoughts, the bubbling of half truths

and scattered sticks of wisdom, expressed

without order in the night of a room.

Pillows are the guardians of words drooled

from the chasm of mouths and ejected

from cerebral complexities. The warden of

speech releases into night swimming dreams,

the backlog of anxiety and hurt and the

frustration of heroes and villains.


The pillow absorbs each phrase, whether

in whole or broken pieces, remaining

impartial to tone or tears.
