A poem, from May

My eyelids fluttered open

rain pitter pattered gently but steadily in the cemetery 

outside my window 

It spoke to me, or they spoke to me

“Gloomy monday morning, don’t go, stay with us”

Stay in bed

So I did.

My eyelids closed gracefully

as if I were a doll, 

controlled by a puppeteer 

Wake up hours later,

still pitter pattering

What have I done?

I’ve missed everything,

seduced back into slumber

Guilt sets in, as the storm clouds pass

I open a book and think

What a silly world I live in

You live in

But I’m not a robot

my eyes flit over the words, like they’re in German

Pillow over my face, and I sleep again
