his tightly balled hand

his tightly balled hand
the size
color
and texture of a ripe apricot
rests in the hollow
on the left side of my neck

I wonder what dreams
he firmly holds
in that most perfect
grasp

he has only been sleeping for a
few stolen moments
but I feel as if I have been knighted
called to duty by this young king
to be a resting place
with beating heart
and billowing chest
just still enough
warm enough
to provide
that most perfect rest
