Is there an angel in the house?
If there is, come to me...
and if you aren't too tired,
or otherwise occupied, and if it isn't too tacky a request,
please rock me.
I am bruised.
If you will hold me until morning, I promise I will rise and light the fire
and break the bread
and put back on my shoulder my corner of the world.
But for now I could use the shelter of a wing.
is there an angel in the house?
