People and Their Sleep

Don Iannone, poem about sleep

There are people
Who stay up
Well past ten pm
These folks–
At least some
Don’t sleep
Until all light is gone

There are other people
Who sleep long past five am
Way beyond when the birds awaken
I don’t see any of these folks
Because I get up at five
And am well into my dreams
By ten at night

  1. You have a great attitude. I think I might try getting up earlier. Too lazy that’s my problem.
