another sleepless night


drowsing in fits and bursts

5 minutes

10 minutes

but never more than an hour

eyes open and staring at the fan

5 rotations

10 rotations

slow wind brushing the sheets

vivid dreams spark and die

5 times

10 times

too many to count in the in-betweens

another sleepless night
