He tells me all of his dreams
Even when he’s lusting after another woman
Even when he has nightmares about me leaving
He cocks his head suddenly
To ask if maybe he’s over sharing?
I could teach him shame
I could also lock my puppy in a cage
But I don’t do it.
I try to steer them both in the right direction
We all sleep together, in a heap.
We are learning how to have nice, pleasant dreams.
I tell them both I’ll never leave.
