Magic Bed, Special Dreams

My bed expands at night,
stretches out to realms
unseen beneath the sun.
My toes touch sands
not made by mountains
on any human map
and there are special dreams
when lovemaking
with handsome men  
is just as real
as when I am awake –
I wake relaxed,
my hands above the sheets,
purring like a cat,
humming songs
no man will ever hear,
in a bed, small and snug
and big enough for one.
