Movements at Night

It took me six and a half years to start sleeping like you, bat-like with ankles crossed low and arms folded into an x over my chest. Was your body silently communicating with me at night to do it your way? Sending molecular telegraphs to my legs to lift up over one another and gently fall crossed at the ankles, motivating my arms to close up in a coffin cued dance under the thick blankets of linen and down. It is surprising to me I never realised I was a back-sleeper with all its vulnerabilities, open wide unto the world, saying Here I Am, I Am Yours.
