Orchard Malingering

Recounting haunts of appled
Cheeks, dappled hair wrapped tightly
Round aching wrist, my habit
Having been kidnapped, nightly

Now I pine for sleep, respite
Long, deficit apparent
Like death’s last inventory,
Our story untold, unspent.

Karin challenged the Real Toads with a word list containing (among others) dapple, hair, inventory, malingers, wrist, and habit.
