My Husband Naps

I always feel depleted
when I see my husband nap. As if
his life is all churned up,
a rocky shore stunned
into a smooth submission
without first being asked.
And now where once lay
guarding rocks sharp
and unkind
he simply wants for the smooth
surface of sleep
only to return to his elbowed points
when I open the door.
