Variations on the Word Sleep

An excerpt from Margaret Atwood’s poem Variations on the Word Sleep, typeset and designed for
inclusion in a compilation of poems about love created for the University of Connecticut’s Interprint collaboration.

I would like to be the air
that inhabits you for a moment
only. I would like to be that unnoticed
and that necessary.
