Nictitating Membrane, anyone?

As the hours push ever on toward our completion

of this word journey,

brain slows, yawns widen,

weary heart wonders why?

Dry eyes leave one to ponder why humans

do not possess a nictitating membrane to moisten the eyeball

of struggling poets as we wander the halls of night,

stumbling toward morning and a full 24 pages of magic.
