Waiting

For the wine

To take effect,

Coupled

With the blood thinners

I have to take

To keep

The blood cells

From banding together

And fighting against me.

I’ve become something

Of a cheap date

Now-

Just a couple

Glasses of red wine

Makes me

Sleepy

Now.

Hopefully

The stress

Of the day

Will fade away

Now

So that I can

Go to sleep,

Finally,

And rest.

Rest quietly

And without waking

Every few minutes

To examine

My thoughts

Just once more.

Once more again.

Once more again until I can no longer take it and find myself sitting at my computer answering emails at 2:30 in the morning just to shut that particular thought out- hopefully.
