I am participating in the August Poetry Postcard Challenge this month. Each day, I send a new postcard with a poem on the back to a recipient on the group list. We began on July 27, but I am posting these a few days late, so that my pen pal can see them first. Enjoy!
What I Know About Missing Sleep
I wake to a rounded world
where even my walk wobbles.
I weave around corners, careen
from moment to moment
without memory. I find myself
in a room I barely recognize
wondering how the world was wrapped
in cotton, without me ever knowing.
