Pass thru the night
Can I get some sleep
Some more sleep tonight?

1 a.m., 2 a.m.
3 a.m.
And then some snore.Love and Tenderness ~ Painting by Patrice

4 a.m., 5 a.m.
What a chore.

Can or should
I sleep
Some more?

6 a.m., 7 a.m.
There’s not
A chance
I’ll sleep
Not even
Once more.

Pass thru
The night
Hope to sleep
And snore.
~ Patrice
