November Insomnia

''Long nights, short years.

 ''If You can make a star from nothing You can raise me up.' 

Auto Lullaby by Franz Wright ( for insomniacs ?)

Think of a sheep
knitting a sweater;
think of your life
getting better and better.

Think of your cat
asleep in a tree;
think of that spot
where you once skinned your knee.
Think of a bird
which stands in your palm;
try to remember
the 21st Psalm.
Think of a big pink horse
galloping south;
think of a fly, and
close your mouth.

If you feel thirsty, then
drink from your cup.


The birds will keep singing
until they wake up.
