“Insomnia Duet” by Alex Bledsoe

He can’t sleep because he imagines
all the wonderful things he might miss.
He clutches his beary-bear
and roars his defiance.

I can’t sleep because I imagine
all the awful things waiting out there.
I clutch my pillow, and wish that
it gave me the same comfort.

    Oh hours I miss the beary-bear outlook. Wonderful piece.

      “how I miss…” although I suppose it does frequently go on for hours. Had to come read this one again.

    This is so good… so good.
