At 2:34am

It’s 2:34am I decide to sleep
– but sleep has other plans.

Aggrieved! My brain voice shouts
– and laughs.
Aggrieved! in an indignant voice.

soft the a; hard the g; long drawn out e’s –
Now punch that D.

It’s 3:34am – Am I asleep?
Awake? – My brain voice says
“aggrieved” – I feel a smile.

It’s 6:34am. I slept, I dreamed.
I laughed. I know I did.
I dreamt the word – aggrieved.


Haven’t a clue what it means. But it happened – just this way.
