I lie in bed, wooing sleep,
But she is a finicky lover.
She ignores my moves,
the way I turn sides restlessly
like the earth drenched in summer
waits for the night.

I wonder
if she thinks I need a new lover,
Or worse still,
if she has found another.

    Beautiful. Yeah that SLEEP, she is a slut. Insomnia and I have known each other for decades. When I am in bed she sits on the side and watches me. Vagrant night!
