sleep
less
ful
y

grotesque
dreaming
the mare of darkness
slowly floating

sleep
less
ful
y

infested
grossly so
thoughts amassed
peculiar strains
of no

sleep
less
ful
y

calling names
never who
as intentions spill
and overflow

much oil
the gears
frictionless
fail to paleness
dismantling anticipation
halting
waking

sleep
less
ful

sands fall through my hands
lands on two piles
i cup my hands around them
but can't keep one from blowing away
shifting like a microdune onto the other

Don't do that!

i said. but it won't listen.

"sleep

ful

like a dream struggling to get up. consciousness drifting apart, drifting into existence, dotting a particular, an instance, forces against the "no", recording itself into this "wakeful blind".~

this
flies as your California
duststorm dries the
membranes of tearless
eyes and slips inside
confusions time to spin
in the brain like a
whirlwind
of silent
wondering
and
sleeping
less full
and
all
those
dadgum
y's

i had to read it several times, and it is still swirling around in my head.
sleepless
fully
kicking up dust

I once heard the shortest horror story:

The last person on earth sat in a room,
Something knocked on the door
