I Can’t Sleep – 15th September

Do they have some quarrel with me

My hip bones

Is that why they turn to lead

And leave me tossing and turning in bed

Why do they feel like knives driving their way into my mattress

Why does my mattress feel like it’s driving right back into me?

Is there animosity there towards me

That my pelvis sticks out at such angles and inflicts on me such discomfort

Why can’t one thought

Lead me peacefully into slumber

Rather than this tiring number

Of tumulting thinking

Tying my forehead in knots

By the time I nod off.
