Sleepless nights

bed
Staring at the ceiling for 7 hours is not useful.

I may have merely been dreaming that I was staring at the ceiling for some of it, but I doubt it.

I watched the sun go down and just now it's back up again.


Recuerdo
We were very tired, we were very merry—
We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry.
It was bare and bright, and smelled like a stable—
But we looked into a fire, we leaned across a table,
We lay on a hill-top underneath the moon;
And the whistles kept blowing, and the dawn came soon.

We were very tired, we were very merry—
We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry;
And you ate an apple, and I ate a pear,
From a dozen of each we had bought somewhere;
And the sky went wan, and the wind came cold,
And the sun rose dripping, a bucketful of gold.

We were very tired, we were very merry,
We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry.
We hailed, "Good morrow, mother!" to a shawl-covered head,
And bought a morning paper, which neither of us read;
And she wept, "God bless you!" for the apples and pears,
And we gave her all our money but our subway fares.

I sometimes have those nights but now I just get up and do something. (When I was younger I would just toss and turn.) I figure that I'll catch up with sleep later. My body is probably so used to call and such that it thinks it should be up all night now and then.
