Bedroom Eyes

As a child, she hugged her teddies too hard to her chest

face-in, oblivious to friction.

 

The button-eyes always came off.

On odd mornings she would wake up

to find the pupil of her favourite bear

on the carpet

staring at the ceiling.

 

It stung her to learn that her care

pulled threads

caused wandering eyes.

 

 

Love blinds.
