A bachelor in his sleep

He still sleeps with 
Languorous hands tucked  
Between his thighs

Screams from his frightening nightmares 
Wake mother to come investigate.
She places her soft fingers 
On his sweaty, burning forehead, 
Asks if everything is fine

And that’s how mother is
To a son with a troubled sleep.
