In Somnia

In Somnia

Hot sheets
Bore holes in my back
Joints ache to move.
Heart bangs out an even rhythm
Made loud by silence’s noise.
One beat crescendos.
Blood in a waterfall
Past ears lying in wait
For unconsious to overwhelm
Eyes purposely kept behind
Twitching lids
Knowing if they slip
My friend sleep
Will flee
To the four corners
of the room
Crushing himself
Against edges and ceiling
Trying to escape
Despite my beconing entreaties
To stay with me for the night.
Grand Canyon 2009, Kolkmeyers 007
