Reading with Ian

at the start of this page

his head lolls farther

down my chest

and the faint grip on his tablet

finally disappears


by the next page,

his hand twitches, a faint snore begins

i kiss the top of his head

and he stops

i tighten the hold i have

on his shoulder

and develop diabetes
