Suprachiasmatic Conspiracy

Because the essence of dreams contains a vacancy
and the scents of a midnight shower recede
into bed-sheets sooner than expected;

Because crazed expressions of paralysis befall me
when unknowingly I let melatonin rob me of the hours
meant for interminable tasks, 

I won't sleep,

Because dreamless nights betray me 
in their illusion of a calmer day.
