Dreamboat

I lay supine, beached on the shore of this mattress
Sand has followed our bare toes home
Your rhythmic breath, like ocean waves
Heaves slowly in the outgoing tide of your dreams
Rocking slowly beside you
Like a boat shifting about in her mooring
Creaking old joints like swollen wood planks
As I shift from side to side
