Bed

Some opening gambits are startling (#4 in this month’s ‘Series of Inexplicable Verse’):

You were funny in bed last night
Asleep within three minutes -
Unprecedented
T-shirt wrapped around your head
I could just see your mouth
Your gentle breathing
In
And out
Sound asleep you were

Until I put the light out
Then you did this funny breathing thing
A huff
And a puff
- And a blow your house down?
And a snorey purring gurgle
- A snorey purring gurgle?
A snorey purring gurgle
You were funny in bed last night

I think that's iambic decahedronated rhombus. Reminds me of it, anyway.

I like that- what ever it is.
