I lay scrunched up on my squeeze-snake sheets
in a mad menacing mood
Turbid thoughts crowd out sleep
Rabid rousings upset REM.
I regard red-rimmed reflectors in the mirror
in a mental-minded mood
Bleary blinking black holes return stare
Are you still here?
I amaze to aurora's arising
Shuddering sobs allow sullen spirit's escape
Resignation respires in a readily-rapt mood
Calm careful considerations come.
I awake aroused on my squeeze-snake sheets
in a joyful jubliant mood
Translucent thoughts clear as slumber lifts
Radiant radiant rhymes race to my desk.
