You’re alive?!

The stars are thick above us in this kind of darkness. You can see how the moon is rough with mountain ranges and etched with rivers and smoothed with oceans. On a night without the moon or stars you can’t see a thing, but you can imagine anything. At least that’s how I remember.

oh sing sweet [nightingale]


(I only sleep when the birds sing)

my mind runs like the Boston Marathon;
I have sniper synapses —
there’s a bomber in my midst;
& a rockstar on the cover of my dreams but
I’m too exhausted to remember unless
I’ve had enough hydration to hold me —

[let her sleep
for when she wakes
she will move mountains]

even Florence couldn’t save me now—
I’ve picked apart Notes On Nursing &
lately I’ve been the lady with the lamp
making my rounds; discovering ways to
compensate for my sub par serotonin

if you want to do me a favor—
if you want to save my life—
don’t let me fall asleep;
don’t let me stay awake—

I don’t move mountains,
I build them —
I stack my expectations to elevations
requiring altered temperatures & times,
but avalanches of anxiety give way each night

I try to fade into the fallout
triage & tape together bits
of my pulverized pieces left over
after preventable implosions;
pause & strain to listen for
any signs of peace —

my heart aches, and a drowsy numbness pains
(I only sleep when the birds sing)

insomnia is anything but idle
