King-size bed

They sell you
the king size bed
and they say
you won’t regret it

but what they don’t tell you
is that there is a lot of room
for things like umbrellas
and today when I woke up
beside felt pens and a hat

I asked my son
who lay between me
and his sister
if he could please stop bringing
objects into our bed

to which he cradled the blue felt
like an orphan
and asked me
didn’t I know
they get lonely.
