Uneasy Rest

I wish to know

How you found your peace

How you discovered the courage

That puts you to slumber at dark



I am dying to find

The deitiesĀ that smiled at your eyes

That toldĀ their lids to shut untethered

How your mind finds restrain

To the corners of your crib

As mine travels

To yesterday, tomorrow and where



I wish to see

Why the night choose you

As its golden child

Why you die every night

Like a timber of wood

And wake up reborn

Like a term neonate

Whilst I march to the labor camp

Thinking I lay my head to rest



I wish to know how you got to Eden

In solitude

While I languish in Goshen
