Bed of Roses Sonnet Contest

by Carey Larsen

She arrives today
In make shift envelopes
Attached to fall
I shuffle around this apartment
In shirts she used for sleeping
Sunset hangs in window frames
Lonely saints designed this day
For love
You bring me
Fantasy of airport phone calls
Raining in New York
Now's our chance for that kiss
Like all these buildings it'll be here
Waiting for you.
