Made up for two sleepless nights
by sleeping 13 hours straight…
wish the mattress wasn’t a fatigue valley.
Listing with creaking lame back along
with the reward of some weird dreams
that I scarcely remember… something about
overrated forays that collapsed into quirkiness;
totally impromptu status opposed to normal
apathetic Monday state of mind numbness.
Paper napkin removes embarrassing black
poster paint and soap all up in a mouth spewing
black bubbles aimed at washing away potty language…
oddly specific request of another human being –
parental duty to deter naughty verbiage in their young.
Waking up this morning with excessive doorbell
ringing – actually it was the phone ripping
apart the last voracious strange dream!
The most noble sleep deprived reprieve…
ranks up there with the classic two part parental
command: Don’t eat your boogers…
and don’t ever feed me your boogers…again!
