My eyes

As silk-wrapped wings


Shadowy legs

Crowding the periphery

A day of dreams

Tended but unmet


To sleep

As if empty

Flesh yielding

Bones malleable

As red earth


To sleep

As if consumed


Into docile sheets

There exists

No greater impetus

Than to return


To the night


I am exhausted. Isadora had a great time yesterday, the kids were happy. There wasn’t much socializing between the adults, however. Isadora is on fall break now so she is home this week. I wonder if I can convince her to the let me sleep?
