For day 24 of the PAD challenge. Prompt: a "spaces" poem.

between quilt and fitted sheet is

before the yolk of the sun
has broken from the shell

of the sky. dark, yes, quiet,

lazy hand slaps it quiet, for
a space

until a cry, the final alarm,
brings soles to carpet and then

on and on through all the day,
tangled-thick, trying
