Karen Audioun Klingman

a box of 64 is hidden in my nightstand
along with 7 Snickers bars and a training bra
they're below school papers from two years ago
not sure I want anyone to find my dreams
its dark
moonlight a beacon
I hear snoring sounds
from the my folks' room
at the end of the hall
I rustle under the papers
pull out the box
feel their slightly flattened heads
bodies standing at attention
in stadium fashion
I like their feel
comfort myself in their presence
peaceful at last
I munch on a Snickers bar
imagine myself wearing a real bra
a magenta dress
under a rainbow
