A little of this, and a little of that…
Often I run out of metaphors
or oblique ways to tell truth
Emotion flows around the shapes
pooling in inconvenient places
Light bends, tricking perception
irises widen, petals close
Sleep comes in a close second
not caring—it’s too tired
The poem lingers between spaces
