is it morning yet

but how do you know
when you don’t get enough sleep
no one asked did they

1 wake up to find that
the water you boiled last night
still warm on the stove

2 fall asleep at four am
but when you wake up
it’s still dark outside

3 the same movie you
were watching when you fell asleep
isn’t over

4 you are watching
george and gracie from three a m
until four a m

5 you eat celery
because calcium is supposed
to help you sleep

6. valerian root
didn’t help in eighties
nor tranquilizer now

why would celery?
jack lalanne said that it did
came with my juicer

five wasted hours
thirty five hours each week
do not do the math
