isn't this what you were looking for?

o the dreadful wind and rain

my teeth felt hollow and empty.
at the foot of my bed i imagined
was a very small whale
slapping its tail against the floor
and trying very hard to blow water out its spout
with little success. i closed my eyes again.
in the relative dark the radiator sighed
the pull down drapes sighed
the bed sighed
the pile of boxes in the corner sighed
i don’t know why.
