First Line: I don't like my pillow - now
Last Line: That I will be content with sleep.
Subject(s): Sleep


I don't like my pillow -- now.
The smug look on its fat and foolish face
Reveals belief that it can take your place.

With pride it cries, "Look at me!
I offer peace -- tranquillity."
Oh God! Who wants tranquillity?

I want you -- hot lips, warm breath
To make my pulses leap.
While my poor pedantic pillow thinks
That I will be content with sleep.
