Insomnia by Colin Morton

Poem name: Insomnia Poet name: Colin Morton Poem:  At your weakest defences unravel   from plans or regrets  that desiccate in memory.  Sweating and shivering  you see all your feats  are wreaths set against  the edifice of death.  A night seen through  day’s a waking dream  the contraptions of day displayed on a flimsy scrim. End of poem.
