...of Ambien

Beckoning chirps/while the dew
still glistens like new
Semi-roll/aching to remain sleep
for they need me, (my dreams), to keep-

my eyes shut tight/as i fight
'cause i don't wanna see the light
Grunting in fetal position/needing to refrain
from the mediocrity to maintain
to be the one expected to remain
in an overdue membrane.

Of course I want to maintain,
but I broke the mold of the 43-week old membrane
that you expect me to remain
and until you can accept that/i choose to refrain-

from the beckoning chirps while the dew
is still new
and continue to roll back to sleep
'cause my dreams, i need to keep
so i'll keep my eyes shut tight,
continue to fight,
and stay away from the light-
positioned like a fetus in a membrane
who's trying NOT to remain.

Simply,

Larie
