insomniacs~

leaves topple one
upon
one

a glacé crescent ebbs overhead
wraiths stick their tongues out for
drops
of

sleep

infected, annular irises acquiesce

  1. between the wraithes and the infected…there is an underlying menace to this…but that is insomnia as well…the leaves falling one at a time makes for a nice allusion to the passage of time too…slowly…

  2. Gosh, I just wouldn’t mind if the sweetness that feeds the fading figures of the night fed my need for sleep. I would nod off refreshed, so–rather than threat–I read a promise here that the moon will provide. Odd as that may seem. Lovely images.

  3. Oh, how good is this description of one of the worlds most annoying afflictions. I hate insomnia with a passion and have ever since I was small. You put a dark face on it and appropriately so. Loved this.
