  • At night
    I turn into a princess -
    I change into
    my pajamas,
    I forget about all the news.
    Suicides and shootings and war
    get swallowed up
    by the lights of the night.
    My bed
    is my prince,
    calling me
    to wild adventures
    beyond my imagination
    and all
    in between
    the cool softness
    and absolute safety
    of a few
    and blankets

    Kiki, San Antonio
