I take my hat off to animals who sleep standing up.
Horses for instance. I’ve tried it a few times, taking
The bit between my teeth when I couldn’t sleep
Lying down, the phlegm build-up causing my body
To have a coughing fit; fit for your coffin, my friend
Said. I whinnied with delight. I’ll pay that, I said.
Once I become a little more stable, I’ll go back
To how it was.
