external stimuli’s
dripping eaves insidiously
seeping inside gobbled
away sleep

moon smeared
tousled topper
came a cropper
rudely shaken

mid-sleep interrupted
soured old gal reached
out for time tested
true picker uppers

Earl Grey tea
biscuits and noisy
words blundering about
unaddressed in head

stable heart no longer
EKG’s highs or lows, staying
the course on an even keel
astride own duck’s back
