Please Let Me Sleep

by on February 23, 2021 :: 0 comments

Twenty four hours in bed, though no rest in the imprints of pillowed heads,
form festering sores and crumbling iron deficiencies,

only two hours of dreams at a time when the snooze is never slapped during the dark nightmares,
when all the snapped brain synapses never want to rest,

but know they’ll be all done until there’s just one night only left for sleep.

– Chris Butler

So little time to sleep while quickly counting sheep. – mh clay
