Ode to our New Sleep System

the box arrived in the mail stuffed with hopeful patterns 
and as we untied the bag of continuous filament polyester insulation
we smiled

the instructions failed to mention that this heaping mound of synthetic 
would grow
taking over the apartment
hovering with it's slippery blue bulk
daring us to tackle the simple instructions

double lapped fell seams, my ass.

but we did
and we won

sleeping bags be damned.
