recipe for sleep

Spreading peanut butter
a satisfying aroma of toasted bread
spreading the marmalade
then cutting it into corners
the crunch sounding good to my ears
with Lana Del Rey in the background
telling the neighborhood she’s up
the feel of warm socks on feet
that have been in a/c all night long
sun rays through the window on port side
don’t my legs look good against this carpet
food abandoned for now, and all the senses
trying to block out the temptations
with battery by the senses
but it’s no good I can’t be swayed
by a bit of toast and sympathy
comfort isn’t comforting me anymore
I need to feel the pain of running hard
and fast until my body gives up
then perhaps I will sleep the night
