Roddy Williams – The Atheist Poet

sleep (2012)

I can see sleep
watching from the shadows
at the river’s edge
licking his lips

last night he did not want me
I lay staring
at my dreams of dreams
flapping round
like landed fish

he’s lapping dancing up the banks now
teasing with his snail’s advance

embraces me

I fall for him again
