Excerpts from Neon Daze

Sleep fits tightly inside
thirty minutes. Its shape
corseted and unfamiliar,
especially the tail end
in which I hear him
somewhere nearby –
nearer than he ever is –
under me or back inside.
I never remembering
placing him in his cot
inside his own half hour
of condensed solitude.
