Laying Down

The pleasure of laying down
After fighting gravity all day
(The skyscraper of our vertebra holding us towering into the air)
The bliss of sleeping on the soft belly of the planet
Which spins quietly under us
As we sink down
And gentle mattress hands push up
To hold us motionless
At rest.
