Sleep

It is

A time machine

Vaporizing and exterminating

Hours and minutes

which might otherwise

Linger

and stretch

.

It is

A puppy dog

Too easily excited

Bounding away at the

slightest noise

Flighty

and prick-eared

.

It is

A teasing zephyr

Contrary and coy

Dancing on the edge

of vision and darkness

Impalpable

and elusive

.

It is

A drug of addiction

The physical need

Stronger than will

Pleading and shaking for

Relief

and freedom

.

It is

Socially unacceptable

Seen as weakness

‘Sleep when you die’

They say, ignoring

Necessity

and pleasure

    just loved this verse…

    It is

    A teasing zephyr

    Contrary and coy

    Dancing on the edge

    of vision and darkness

    Impalpable

    and elusive
