Hearing a line thwack
aluminum mast all night —
can you say “no sleep?”

Rain on the tin roof
above my head drip drip drip
led to little sleep.

Found myself watching

Breaking  Bad at 4 a.m.

What is wrong with me?

Rain on metal roof
means little sleep — made me sad —
too much time to think.

A lit snowflake on
the telephone pole keeps me
awake most the night.

Star on the light pole
shines in my window. No sleep.
Ho ho ho ho ho.

Fitful sleep then woke
when blue jays decided to
party in the tree.
