Gogyohka 11.22.09

in my family
has bathrobes
Born into a country
of freezing mornings

My past--
a chandelier
above my head
I'm reaching to shake it
to watch the dust glitter

Laying spread on the pillow
he is a stuffed animal
Real hair doesn't come
in galaxy orange
I want to pet it back to life

---Don't know about "pet" as verb for lien 5. Originally it was "stroke," but that seemed too sexual.
