Freshly Made

Freshly Made


She was . . .

an unmade bed —

all rumpled sheets

and crumpled blankets —

with the coverlet

on the floor.


Except . . .

when company came.


Then . . .

she was all made up,

with sheets smoothed

and blankets tucked

and coverlet draped

to perfection.


How nice she looked . . .

for guests.


Then one day

she finally became

her own VIP —

her own turn-down service —

and placed a mint

on her own damn pillow.
