Insomnia


by Zoe Sparque

Flick face of a woman a stranger familiar
Flick darkness distraction dreams happier times 
Flick blood run eyes unkempt hair drowning sorrow in night sweats 
Flick sip river Lethe the nightstand the bottle
Flick pills silent heart beat 
Flick tear in the curtain
Flick tears dried up crying
Flick bird song the sunrise 
Flick sweltering heat
Flick the switch
Flick the waiting
Flick hoping 
Flick nothing 
Flick lost
