Sleep Deprevation and the Greeks

Awake at night,

the popcorn texture

of the ceiling reveals

truths and 



It means everything 

and everything means 


Some half-baked 

philosophic riddles pass

through my thoughts. 

You forget how it 

all adds up–

the philosophy,

the truths,

the popcorn ceiling–

when you search 

for a rhyme or reason. 

It means everything

and everything means 


Or perhaps it all

depends on which 

ancient guy with a theory

you prefer. 

For now,

I choose sleep.
