excited chatterings of wide awake mind

pleading nay begging to sleep

seconds then minutes then hours tick by

lost any hope counting sheep

“lay there just

breathe… silent and still

do not move do not talk do not think”

but lyric or worry or dumb-minded fear


like clattering plate in a sink

like boy racer car

through the city at night

like gunshot or shout or dead thud

sudden too quick

interrupting the still

of wide awake mind clear as mud

Bit of bio:

I like sleep and I don't get enough of it.
