Insomnia

ApatheticTurtle

The tide is rising.

Too much moonshine

and firecrackers.  Too many

sirens and helicopters.  Too much

coughing, Facebook and Instagram.

The feeble sweeping of dust devils.  A cat

in heat.  A cat on my chest.  Thirst

for water, lime and tequila

on a weekday

with loneliness wrapped around me

instead of you, My Love

instead of you.

                                     Richard Rensberry, Author at Quick Turtle Books®

    Oh, Richard, I know the feeling. Too much Facebook, Pinterest and WordPress for me. I think I’ll have to take a holiday. Love your poem. Cheers 🙂 Irina
