Not sure anyone has ever read this before.~~GH

The residual heat 
from the beast with two heads 
is fading now, long
past the sprawled out, 
dissipating energy phase. 

We've moved through
the critique-and-kudos stage.
Wrapped in his arms, 
warm and relaxed, 
I want to drift away. 

My vivid affection 
becomes less intense 
with each braying snore. 

The coldness of the wet spot – 
always on my side, of course – 
assails my hip and I lay 
awake in the moonlight, 
a chilled leaky vessel.
