yet

when you go to sleep
and the sleep doesn’t come

yet, instead you find yourself
laying in bed
engulfed by the aftersound of the void

and the time as a tourniquet
is fettering your limbs

and the register of the days of yore is empty
nevertheless you still have to pay the bill

no credit accepted

you try to recount how many times the hammer hit the last peg
yet you can only recall the first.
