down time

October 7, 2013 § Leave a comment

I want to read
sleep denies me
want to sleep and here

come the dreams
want to dream but I
cannot keep from
wondering why

the wind wants in when
I’m such an
ungracious host
to hostility

so I just lay here
for the proper moment

to rise to the task
of finding a task
to accomplish

then I can convince
myself that
it really wasn’t
so much of a
wasted day and

that down time isn’t
as much
of a downer
as I think
it is
