Random Poem:

The Bed

Between me and the big window’s the bed.
The white sheets on which many books I’ve read.
Between the bed and the fence is the snow.
Over this deadly blanket wind does blow.
There in the dark I see my bed’s reflection
Lying outside without a home’s protection.
This luxury there is mixed with the cold.
Ice forms a wall around trash cans so old.
I see myself sleeping on the reflection,
And wonder why some live without protection.
