Sweet Insomnia

Sweet Insomnia

A Chapter by J. Viands

Engulf me sweet insomnia

Cradle me in the big dipper

It’s two in the morning again

Each cigarette puff is a declaration


Tomorrow night will surely be another night

Same with the one to precede it

A particular tranquility fills the air at three AM

With every footstep echoing from the middle of the street


Only a handful of men and women seem to know what I mean

Only a handful know the owls deep wisdom

Hovering in infinity until the dawn shakes us from our conscious dream

Then life dissolves into a fanatical misfit’s play place


Eyes are seeing everything in repeat

It comes to light how delusional others can be

How unsure reality is, how a pacifist can learn to swing with closed fist

Seems to me everything is creeping by in a slow motion overdrive


Blasphemy becomes a daily thing

Hear whispers coming from nowhere in particular

Not really saying anything other than

Engulf me sweet insomnia
