You Snore

Post by P on Wed Oct 29, 2014 2:13 pm

I wonder what prompted this? Something about laughter perhaps? See if you can laugh loud enough to for me to hear you.

You Snore!

Much as I love you, you snore.

I wouldn't say it was loud.
A passing jet

(at 90 feet)

Could easily mask the sound
Hiding in some decibeled corner
Of engine number four
With cabin pressure.

Air conditioning,

And power generation.

The sound would hardly register
On the flight engineers glass fronted gauge
For vibration
By more than a hairs breadth,
(if that!),
Or some hidden part of a gnats anatomy,
Or cat's hirsute nasal cladding.


Hotels hate us!
Relegated to some remote outpost

Beyond the bar (!!!)

Beyond the ballroom.

Beyond the gym.

Beyond the pool.

Up the steps,

(down the stairs),

Behind the windowed swing door

(next to the furthest fire escape
And night porters check in point).
Down the longest, darkest corridor,
Beyond the reach of the longest cabled vacuum.
Almost out of earshot!

morning coffee

The sleepy guests comments,
Overheard at breakfast,
Reflect the tome
In accents strange,

cooking

mouths full of porridge,

Saussage,

Eggs,

Bacon,

Beans,

Black pudding,

Hash browns,

Fried bread,

Toast,

And coffee

lots of coffee

(all at the same time!).


"Who was that snoring?"

don\'t know

(It wasn't me!)
"Did you hear it?"
"How could I not?"

It doesn't bother me.
I'm used to it now.
It doesn't wake me up!

But when I rise to conciousness,
Roused by some pin dropping,
Or internal organ pressing,
Or mouse's heavy footfall,
Or passing cars rumbling tyre
(a mile away),

I can't get BACK to sleep!

Sleep
