An Ad for the Perfect Waterproof Mattress Protector

The modern mattress
is what makes possible
modern sleep;
soft so I
model myself in it
like I'm to become
a plaster cast.
..What's wrong? she asks
there's something bothering you.
The modern mattress
can hide the mite
that eats my skin
slough, lives small
excretes itch and sneezes.
..Just anomie, I answer
nearness to old age,
a reminder of waste.
I will
sheath the modern mattress
in cotton terry
with warp and weft
like the wall of China.
It will keep out
the droppings of mites.
