Shared Nights

we touch stories
through darkness
loop them across the bed

tie hands and feet
with storms and flight
past ‘ever after’

to a land outside
night where dragons
rest on sheered sheep

you find a sword
but cut nothing
only the ribbon

that loosens the past
to announce
‘once upon a time’
