MAN, I LOVE BEDTIME (A POEM FOR NESTA)

Slumbering
Zzzzz
A mis-shaped face gapes open at the mouth
Wakes slowly with one eye shut
And re-arranges its pace to form a unified
Front

Drool dangles
Drips lip to chin
Slurps back in where it belongs
Slides along a tongue and is swallowed
Hole

Nose niggles
Twitches
Bewitches the brain with imagined insects
Landing, lounging
Creeping up cavernous
Nostril nooks

Dream steps
Missed
Falling face-down onto metaphorical foreheads
While lying flat-backed
On the bed

Dozing drowsily
Napping
Not quite awake nor asleep
Quite aware
Neither here
Almost there

All most easy
