Up All Night - Poetry by Yvonne Perry

Up All Night

I stayed up all night
trying to seduce Mr. Sandman
Eyelids heavy
Mind on steroids
Chasing rabbits down trails
That wind a circular path
back to the latest insanity
I’m trying to erase
From the banks of a lane call Memory
Fast track to a red-eye day
Headache hovering
Yawning, fawning
Over an afternoon nap
That escapes my sleepy head

(c) 2013 Yvonne Perry
