A Good Night’s Sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep

means

going without
fretting about
or rationalizing
night sounds

for six hours
for once

means

six hours gladly
amnesiac about 
the words of
a devout Christian friend

who shook her head
and sadly agreed

that God’s plan
probably involves Him
apologizing
to you

means

ten good seconds
upon waking that 
try as you might
can’t be stretched into 
fifteen or
twenty

means

another day of taking 
what you get

means

another day
hoping for 

a good night’s sleep
