About Sleep

Prompt from Poetic Asides: use the phrase "what I love about . . . "

What I love about sleep is . . .

its late nights and early mornings
and interruptions in between,

its hallucination of rest and
taunting of my wake-filled dreams,

its enslaving elusiveness
and illusory demeanor.

    they are gentle and smart animals.
