Why I Like Cotton


Why I Like Cotton
by
Matthew Ivan Cherry

I like my pillows
stuffed
with abundance...

but down feathers
 prick
through the fiber’s weave 
like pubic hair
in underwear
irritating my skin
and pissing me off.

They draw pink inflated welts
like clouds shifting and traversing the sky of my scapulae
poking my thin skin 
and drawing rosa.

…guess cotton’s the next best thing.
