To Lie, at last alone, in dirty sheets

I can't be bothered to wash and dry,

look at botched and peeling ceiling,

and try whether I'm hungry enough

to get up, should not feel that strange

for I have lain on the clean white bed

of the sea and watched, so breathlessly high

above me, the glistening green glass waves

of the sky glide by.
