Sleep

by Amy Jenner

 
They tell me to meditate, get some head space
Put lavender on my temples, droplets on my sheets
Get a chillow, a wool pillow, fluffy socks and button up smocks
Prop myself up, lay flat, don’t turn on to my sides, support my lower back
Practise breathing in and out and in and out and in- hold, out- hold
In and ooouuuuut
Have a late night bath, eyemask, earplugs, easy access water for midnight gasps
Take a tramadol, a codeine, a weak as shit proprananol
Be kind to myself
Be kind to myself
Be fucking kind to myself
Still.
It doesn’t come
