Sleep here (a poem)

Inspired by a movie and an overused digital photo effect.

Sleep here and echo my last thoughts
a cartoon out of control
raging hard, warriors of the wasteland

Oases of blue
spots of red
lightning sparks amber
against dashboard blue

Sleep here though the light’s not out
goodbye darkness, my old friend
I see you’re having trouble sleeping tonight

The blaze is not so glorious
sirens approach nonetheless
an emergency
looking for a fight

Sleep here before morning crashes the party
blinding eyes shut—
what day is it, anyway?
