Breathe in… breathe out… and in again

Stretching out time and space in the darkness

Not listening for sounds but knowing they’re there

Television, radio, telephone, clock

Tick tick tick tick

Breathe out… breathe in… and out again

Settling my head and my limbs and my lungs

Not thinking of work but work is thinking of me

And I can’t make it stop

Work work work work

Breathe in… breathe out… and in again

Checking off a mental list of awarenesses

Too aware for the lateness of day; the morning approaches

Faster than silence, faster than dreams

Faster than sleep
