Nodding Off




The ache of exhaustion

creeps into my body

like a thick San Francisco

marine layer.



throbs behind my eyes

and radiates down my core.

My thighs are heavy

and my calves are tight,

even the tops of my feet tingle.


My eyes burn

and my lids demand

they be lowered.


I imagine

the stars and moon

on a warm, summer
