Comforters are insecure
Blankets hide in between secrets
Muffling the truth of the matter
Pillows make lewd suggestions
To any side of the head
That happens to take an interest
Sheets are cold at first
Until they warm up to you
King, Queen, Full, and Twin
Are an incestuous family
Linen loses it around bedtime
Bedspreads are nice at night
A ruckus in the morning
Throws miss the spot
Quilts always get confused
About life’s bits and pieces
Coverlets and Duvets argue
Endlessly about standing alone
Memory Foam never forgets
a shapely ass and a good boob job
Thread Counts weave tall tales
Down begins all fluffy and nice
Then becomes one big prick
Flannel likes your grandma

Ha, truth – nice one! Down, reveals why it’s called down, eventually. I have a love / hate relationship with it.
I love it. Going back to read it a few more times right now!
This is wonderful. I’m so glad I took the time to come over to your blog, also thank you for coming to mine.
beautifully crafted … like fine lace …
Clever, sexy, wrong, right, this has everything.
Lovely, dark, and deep, and funny!
skip the duvet!
I love the pictures, especially the second one. I am a Grandmother who loves flannel. It is such fun to read your poetry with its mixture of intelligence and wit. 🙂
Oh and not to forget! I love all your pics! Really artistic! Where ever you got it from! 🙂
And I am wondering all the time what is ALL in your MIND as you write all of this??? 🙂
I like the way you see things and make it an inspiration for writing. Wow … you are awesome …
Makes me want to snuggle and avoid the down.
Cute and quirky I love it.
Thanks for the reblog!

Charming, witty, elegant writing. i like this very much – Thank You.
What fun! I didn’t realize there were so many different types of bedding. And the pictures are wonderful too. Love the bear…lol.
The photos caught my attn. The first one captures a bit of old time seduction. Each line inspired different thoughts. The photos inspired emotions like a blank coloring page and the words you added were like color crayons. Fifty Sheets of Grey.
Like it! Another hit!
Thanks, so much
Absolutely love this. Just brilliant!
I loved this. So clever.
Trial and Error, with an emphasis on error
I love this just as much as Sacred Clothing. Would love to be in your head and hear the process you go through when you write. That would be such an adventure.
