sleeping with the hard words

I
will read you
all
to sleep

hush

these words
are heavy

but
if I sing a song in places

that
I do not know

you
can sing
in a deep voice

you
can sing like
a teddy

we will sing
where the hard words go
where the hard words
are
too heavy

and then
we’ll sleep

make a space
for me
to
sleep
