Sleep

 

 

Fighting it, loving it, craving it

revelling in it

Dragged from it, longing for it

Sacrificing it,  forgetting it

cheating it, skipping it, missing it.

At last, in my old, big dream bed

Getting it.

Deep black velvet, a white veil,

purple dreams, grey sorrow,

morning sun yellow, midnight brown,

passion red satin, tattered rags,

innocent blue, guilty green

Dry mouth hangover, heart beat joy,

soaring satisfaction, hard work prize

cradle, crib, twin and queen

water bed, springs or foam

jail slab, guest room frill.

don’t you worry for no one will

escape that last great sleep.

Now close your eyes…not another peep.
