2020-09-07 – For Deeper Sleep

call it ‘promiscuity’ or the
sea of band-aids

peeling from same
musty mattress

midst the whiffs of
spoiling soul,

it’s grown easy to,
so they brand
you ‘easy’,

but don’t wear
a word as

stilted monogamy
can numb your
nerve too,


so go rest that

on any cloud that
offers deeper
sleep to
