For Olivia and our AWOL dreams:

Sanctimonious sleep

swat mosquito minutes

While seconds drip

Daymares vex

REM not

Torpor tortures

Fatigue’s final falter

Alarms tattle

Family Vacation

Poetweeter’s Note:  Another title change from “Family” to “Family Vacation.”

Never speak of love,

empathy, tolerance

Keep such cursed words

from lips & heart

Censor benevolence

Deny forgiveness

Welcome home
