100 Words for Sleep

An ocean of sound waves in whelming rhythm;
A lounge-room full of inviting chairs;

The lightness of a dumbbell,
The weight of a wafer;

A lullaby,
A symphony;

The distance from inside to
The furthest place away from day;

A tower of the smallest seeds;
A firm and delicate soft thing;

A consuming embrace,
A father’s stern distance;

The slap of a Judas Kiss,
The faithful arms of a brother;

An autocrat denying needs,
A brazen stranger yelling things;

A gift of clouds
From one who loves;

The stillness of a knowing friend.
The open bed of quiet grief.
