Sloth

Sleep a little longer

A little too long

So that you’re tired

Even while awake

(Sleepwalking)

 

Take a second too long to respond

Watch their face fall

Fall back asleep

Guiltless

Too tired to care

 

A sleepwalker

“It doesn’t matter anyway”

“Later, okay?”

Leave silently

“They won’t mind

right?”

 

Five more minutes

months

years

Then wonder

why you’re alone

(drowsily)
