Poem: “Perfect”


Outside my window a downpour turns the parking lot into a lake


Inside, warm under blankets, I mold my body to the shape of the


shape of my sleeping lover


A content grey cat curls up in the nook of my knees


I am not unable to drift off, but unwilling


Savoring the symphony of the pounding rain and the steady


breathing of my beloved


By Julia Rothstein
