Sedate Postcard

Siesta

The tiredness of the armchair,
the aches of the catatonic lamp,
the dominion of the window,
defamiliarising the sky,
the magazines and papers,
weeks old, unread, spread,
in a faint, onto the table.
Flowers with crooked elbows,
too bored to even die.
The discreet agony of sunny afternoons,
when sleep is the opiate,
and you drink and drink.
