Sleeping

brought up
expecting my own
impending
royalty, raised
on platinum, diamonds
things as cold as
distant stars
nurturnace through wealth
and other's whispers
the smell of strangers
in a child's bed linens

never did
i know my own
mother's milk
not her breast
not her hand
not her song
deprived of warmth
a somnolent snake
to wake
in the noontime sun
of adolescent awareness
but waken to what?
