Sleep Is A Cheap, Lover


I will not indulge
The complications.

That expose solitude
As a place
Where I lay my head.

Woe. Right?

This Western comfort
Has made me afraid
To own a gun.

I know
I’ll load the chamber
With imaginary bullets.

Using my splattered brains
As a representation
Of lucid thought.

Sleep,
Sleep,
Sleep,

I have it
Too much
Or
Too little.

And all the strangers smile
In the afternoon.

I practice my social endurance
By treating my head nods
Like a bow.

Just one more glance
One more hello

I will have enough practice
For goodbye.

Goodbye to sleep!
Hello to living!

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
