Still Awake

Floor, bed space mined with
pens, books, tablets—toothpicks that
prop my lids open.

Computer screen light
keeps me typing and reading
beyond lucidity.

Worth little early
awake returns too soon, I’m
again caught at ON;

progenitors of
awake time still at their on
positions on floor bed screen.
