Head full of thoughts
I stare as
Heavy dog, resting his head
On my foot, dreams.
I envy him.
For me, sleep dances out of reach
So I scroll through Facebook, twitter; play pokemon and candy crush
In the witching hour
Hoping to feel my eyes become heavier than a dreaming dog
until closing they take me the quickest route to Saturday.
I hope in vain.
As I bemoan my fate
Otters giggle, squeal and tag my boat
wooshing water while they play
And delighting in their joyousness
Cease worrying about my need to sleep
Putting my phone down, I take my glasses off
