Sleeping Bag by by Agnieszka Filipek (Lucent Dreaming Issue 9)

I yawn and my eyes
slowly kill the light
like a doll I shut down

this body is like
a sleeping bag
one size fits all

when it falls asleep
I wander for hours
in a different world

sometimes a dog
is chasing me
but mostly I fall

with my legs
caught in something
and then I’m down

stretching myself
to fit inside
again
