the sleep beneath me

sleepless night, refried memory

always a lover who has abandoned

and rejected me. i try to understand

why she no longer calls, or writes.

i try to examine the deepest part of me

smoothing out all the wrinkles

i try to understand whether all of this

will lead to clarity, rightness, love

one breath leading to tranquility, the

silent and steady fall of sleep beneath me.
