Consistency

Sleep deprivation comes naturally to me;

Years of anxiety,
waking at every shuffle,
thinking so quickly—
even in the deadest rest—
that I wake myself, over and over,
have taken their toll

I’ve had to find tools to quiet
my mind and my body.

Months of experimenting,
supplements
doctor’s appointments,
and trial medications
finally – have led me to a regimen that works

One that I have skipped today,
in favor of nonstop poetry and
3 am broccoli baking

What a strange creature I am
