sleeping alone

sleeping alone

“Things I dislike: sleeping in an apartment alone”
Susan Sontag, diary, February 21, 1977

“I, who have felt the horror of mirrors”
Jorge Luis Borges, “Mirrors”

it was no mirror
but words from a diary

that showed me to me
the one who let you sleep alone

despite my only true desire
being me and you intertwined

so that others could not tell
where you ended and i began

i wake to a gray day of rain
only cracker crumbs sharing my sheets
