Wishing Well by Kate Schmitt

The mesh of the blanket tangles
and lumps of comforter
two-toned flannel and bedspread
twist and slip.

I haven't slept in a week
so i wear my brown hooded
sweatshirt with the hoodstrings
pulled tight around my face.

I picture a wishing well
with edges of greening minerals
and coins dull with old water.
I throw my wish in a copper arc.

After I've thrown it I lie
unconcerned. These things take time.
