Night

I lie on my right
with my back against to the door to relax.
I think about burglars so turn on to my left
so I’d be able to see them coming in.
I think about being able to see burglars
coming in so turn on to my back
and I think about burglars breaking through
the ceiling so I close my eyes and think
about burglars smashing through my ears
and into my brain and stealing any sense
of a mind I used to have.
