Time In Bed


Illustration by Malaika Astorga


I love my bed

I love the smell of freshly laundered sheets

I love the warmth and weight of the sheets on top of me.


I spend so much time in bed

I have sex

I masturbate

I watch TV in it.

I aimlessly browse the internet

I listen to podcasts

I meditate

I read

I write.


Sometimes I cry in it


I feel sad


Find comfort in it.



I also have no respect for it.

I’m always eating in it

Spilling things


When I am sick I drool all over my pillows


I don’t change my sheets enough.



I know I’m always safe

Here in bed.
