Hieroglyphs for Waiting

quilt clipped at armpits
arms hugging the body form
[possibly to keep it warm?]
legs straight, feet in the air –
quite the mummy I am
as I stare at the ceiling
but there’s nothing there…

except three long-gone flies
bunting-wrapped by a spider –
a trio of tiny mummies… in fact
who exactly‘s gettin’ in on who’s act ?
