A long sleep goodnight

Much to do
people to see
thoughts to proceed
wrapped warm, for the flipside
is the cold side
stop, to decide is to act

Run rabbit run rabbit don’t stay still
a pair pull themselves together
as the sun’s next show is not for another
8 and a half hours

Thoughtful mob that lot
gnawing on a semi-conscious carcass
becoming carcass number 2

Single divans as wrestling rings
rebounding off ropes
on to
cold hard floors

Hemispherical headaches split sleep
closing eyes
adjusting to the dark
or a lack of light perhaps

7am time will toll and it will turn

An easy morning stroll
silence is not a falling tree
in a forest of no ears
ponds and frogs and garden gates make noise
even unless they’re told

Anti-awake is not in favour of sleep
quiet is enjoyable
darkness gives you time
not to think.
