Whatever Helps

innocent sleep disrupted
(gunfire overseas closer)
waiting to welcome me
hold me against anxiety
oversleeping symptotic

ten years of up all night
working in the theatre
days extended artificial
energy enhanced wake
up my main message

work makes you tired
kids and nine to five I
slept well if you let me
got up earlier to write
a few minutes myself

I had it solved stay up
late get up early not a
problem then it came
back a threat or all too
actual span of horror

what I dread most is
late night awake why
not sleep what I want
a break from my mind
gnaws goulishly dark

pills do the trick now
but can't go on I don't
approve silly not value
whatever helps sleep I
am O.K. in the morning
