The Product of One Hotel room and Insomnia

"The Product of One Hotel Room and Insomnia"
The melting crystalline snow trickles down the gutter outside our window,
Masking the sounds of the gray highway.
I hear deep breathing, from my mother,
Rattling snores, from my father.
The clock strikes 1 A.M.
More snoring, deep breathing

like a heart beat.
Breath, snore; breath, snore; breath, snore; breath, snore; breath, snore


in perfect iambic pentameter.

"But when I sleep, in dreams they look on thee,"

Breath, snore; breath, snore; breath, snore; breath, snore; breath, snore.
A sonnet of dreams.
While my dreams lay awake,


filling my head,




splashing on the pages of my notebook.
Melting snow from my mind,
My pen the gutter plip-plopping the letters down


into the street,







the page.
Meanwhile the roaring highway of my fears,
Lies in the background,
Covered by a sonnet of awake dreams,


and dreamed dreams,



and dreams yet to be dreamed.
Free to roam the edges of my conscience,



but afraid of what I will find there.
I sit in silence




With






Unquiet










Mind.
