In my dream there is no more numbness,

him, our heights don't match
so I have to look up. "How do you like it?"
I say; a slight smile, "The other way."
I turn, flat on my stomach across the bed,
hips up, feet still on the ground. I don't feel the
pain, or pressure when he enters me,
just tiny pinpricks across my legs, like pebbles
stuck on the inside, racing to protrude through skin;
falling so fast and wildly that it never hits the same
