Today's poem is by Elizabeth Austen

Scene: Interior, Night

one thin wall a narrow world away
he sleeps I pace
morning a narrow hall
one thin wall worlds away
he sleeps I pace one room
between us sleeps a world
away I pace one wall
a narrow bed a world
pole to pole I pace
he sleeps he dreams
a world away
