Kelly Sievers, CRNA
Spring 2005 - Volume 5 Number 2
She wants to know what time it is.
Did she sleep? She has no
time to lose in sleep since probing
fingers circling felt it nestled
jewel-like, beneath her nipple.
A steamy mirror, one arm lifted,
stillness before words rose:
How much time? She needs to know.
Buttoning blouses, moving boxes,
turning toward her lover in
and out of bed, she feared it spoke
to all her cells in secret code
