Sitting down to this -- what is always

III. Tips For Better Sleep
Even moresothan that list of Do Today, there is, before dousing your lights,
The sunlight outside is cold and dry. Shadows
of birds flit
over the windowpanes, ghosts of this moment.
In times of drought, or frozen lakes, consider
your head, along the back and sides
is sticky, soft, stretched.
Pluck through it like a schoolteacher's songpractice
drifting upstairs through the floor.
A hoodie and coat to take out the trash
before the latticed silhouette of that bare tree abetting the lake.
My frozen lake.
Your purse under your arm,
and off you go, taking steps like the back of your head.
