No down comforters on my bed.
Sleep is hard enough when you don’t have
feathers and bills and memories
poking you in the early morning hours.
Just take a few pills,
let the feeling take you over and
try your best to drift off into
some made-up land of NSW or PDX.
Fly on broomsticks,
romp around the shores,
but whatever you do,
Don’t let the mean reds
take you over and
save your money
for when you have to
help a friend in need.
