Restful

Uncategorized

I slept today. 
I did not rest. 
I slept for the moment, 
maybe fifteen minutes or so. 
I do not rest for love 
or calm; 
I sleep for a moment 
maybe fifteen minutes or so. 
My mind will not wander, 
so I will not rest. 
I close my eyes 
but won’t exhale. 
I slept 
less than twenty ticks, 
not restful, 
but tactful 
to pull myself 
quick. 
Born awake, 
living dreams; 
I slept for a moment, 
but I did not rest.
