Nourish The Workers

Sleep awakens
those internal workers
to begin the act
of re-balancing the days journey

whether complex as a flake of... 
or mundane as tying shoes   
Sleep offers a deliberate reset
slowing the heart, breath and brain
to a primordial position

Or not

The workers sometimes do not arrive
Hence sleep becomes a terror
a movie presenting abstraction as a storyline
a subconscious tour de tete
offering not an ounce of tranquility
but an abundance of blustering thoughts

Nourish the workers by placing
the days journey at the tip
of the tongue
So they can push it out effortlessly
