Catch Some Wide Eye

Last Night


i couldn’t sleep
again
so i made a drowsy list:
sunlight
pressure changes
heat
meetings
alarm clocks
riding a car
and i realized
i could not conquer sleep
the way it conquers me
so i thought about zombies
and what a sniper would need
in the zombie apocalypse:
guns
ammo
granola bars
bottles
water
first aid kit
flashlight
zombies
but then i was still awake
fighting my zombie self
dreaming of things
things that would be awesome to have:
self-cleaning teeth
jet pack
talking tortoise
ear flaps
an island
exoskeleton
wings
revolving house
but then i thought
the one thing that would be really
really nice to have
is
sleep
