Sleep, sleep like a dog, sleep.
Let the world unroll from you
Unfurling like a tail.
Let the stars glisten in the wet womb of sky
And nuzzling descend to catch in fur.
Let the world’s singing
Rise and fall outside
With dim darkness
Smothering your ears.
Sleep like a dog,
Chasing the comets of your ideas,
Stirring embers of thoughts in the sky.
The ghosts are ascending white tides
To the blue Arctic moon,
In morning sunbeams they will bless and melt.
All is energy without time
And night brings bones and mending.
Goodnight all who would wish to say goodbye,
The dream is rising.
Flick away your snores like the flies on time
And revel in your sleep.
