“Can’t Sleep”

Norma Jean

pounding my eardrums

in this

middle of the night

half-awake

can’t sleep

precarious balance

of living and dead,

so i’m up,

up and at ’em

in the early a.m.

when no one else is,

trusty headphones

delivering up

aural relief

as i put

pen to paper

and flesh out

my many

frustrations,

too many

to name
