To Sleep

by Alan Harris
Body and bed go soft.

Final thinking fades to formless vapor.

Mattering gives way to "all is well."

Breathing forgets breathing.

Shapeless shadows welcome a friendly falling.

Wishes murmur up through moving images.

Dewdrop opens into endless ocean.

Time unknown . . .

Innerly free . . .

Floating . . .

Drifting . . .

Peace . . .

80-megaton alarm clock explodes.

From the book The Wheel of Yes (1995)
