if the rooster crowed this morn
i did not notice
the heavy weight of slumber 
     always keeps me pinned to my mattress
until dreams
         like phantoms
leak through the pores 
of my skull

im tired, now.
like a shot of Valium direct to my cerebellum.
I feel like the rhythm has just as much to do with it as the words.

Slumber. Nice place to hide-in. Nice description made the sleepy place come alive. Thank you Ana for sharing the excellent poetry.

I have enjoyed your work dear Ana and you are welcome.
This sounds so soft, almost sighed, with the weight being a burden that has taken too great a toll. Disturbing, yet beautiful image of dreams leaking through pores. Missed your words :)
