Sleep should be happening, in fact hours ago,
my mind ought to be lost in a dream,
but the question remains
what about the dreams when laying awake.
Is it fair to suggest we only dream when our eyes are closed,
or could we also perhaps say that’s a cop out.
Eyes awake seem to have more prevalence
because then an onlooker
well if contact is maintained,
they might have a better idea of your peace of mind,
or totality of being a surface level clown
trying to find his way
through this mountain of controversial change
in his life, in hers, no his is his own, hers well,
he no longer needs to know.
And yet the wonder will always be waiting
