Traffic Jam

Sleep has not arrived

as traffic has it stuck

so tonight lingers on

I am just outta’ luck.

The pileup is of you

and all my errant thoughts

that block this road from passage

and leave my stomach tied in knots.

Why won’t you go away

and leave my memories be?

Let sleep through tonight

so finally I am free.
