Improvise the Rise

I’m not using an
Alarm to wake this morning
I’m freestyling it

Where I Lay My Head

You’re not a pillow
But I’m treating you like one
Drool on your shoulder

Run-Down Recess

For its lunch money

Sleep is the hand that
Comes up from my pillow and
Pulls me to dream land

Dormant

April 26, 2006

Try hibernation
It's not just for winter and
It's not just for bears

Sparkling

Instead of face wash I used
Minty fresh toothpaste

Infiltration

Last night I dreamt of
Rewriting a sleep Haiku,
Syllable Panic

The Irony

I am so obsessed
With insomnia that it
Keeps me up at night

The Campaign

February 13, 2006

Body, rally up,
Lay siege on the land of sleep
Conquer the caffeine!

To my cat’s determined meows
I sleep on her terms

Above me lives a
Tap dancing bear who trains till
Four in the morning

Sleepless

January 30, 2006

My insomnia:
Getting eight hours of sleep spread
Out over three days
