And Then I Sleep

There’s a drummer in my ear

I’ve been just about to tears since they
started three days ago

I don’t know why they’re here.
but they are, so I listen
and I hum and I sway

and I write in ways that might just
record what they’d have to say if
their music spoke words

and then, I sleep peacefully
