Night

i am the

world’s greatest insomniac.

awake even while sleeping

neck stretched on a pillow for

my nightly pretender’s pilgrimage

eclipse eyelids shudder down

seeking lidded refuge

lashes flurry closed

blurring the false bravado of

those softly spiked bodyguards who

during the hardships of day

daintily disrupt traffic

seeking entry

to my soul windows

while the ever thickening dark

sprawls jet strands across the sky

stygian ink wrapping the moon

feel earth’s heart pulse

as it beats slower

to signal ‘rest’

i am creation’s coward

slipping through dawn’s claws

+ escaping into star spangled oblivion

my sheets bring only hollow relief

my troubles will not vanish

with the sandman
