She sleeps, she coos

A new poem by Leon Wing

Under netted pyramid she
Dies in sleep. The book,
Dead, forgotten in slumber,
Remembered in dreams, has
fallen from her hands.
The Nile drifts her lightly
Away, her head on feathered pillows.
Her eyes behind lids
Move, attending but not seeing.
A small scream nuzzles through
The goose downs of her sleep
Into her head. She hears
The wake of the cry
Melding into a litter of whistling
Breaths. The mother’s cooing
Soothes the new births into mews.
