hunger

 
I crawl into bed and try to push your arm back
from where I'd like to lay
but your mostly asleep body curls around me instead and I
   
turn the tv on because I will stay awake for at least another
hour and I drink the rest of your beer and then you turn
   
away from me and I arch my back to let your regain
blood in your fingers and you pull it away  
   
but it is mostly like I am letting my stomach reach
for something higher because I do not pray but
   
maybe like hunger it tells me it needs
more than what I have given it,
maybe
