Can't Sleep

Insomnia is my friend. She hangs around like she trolls the internet. I can't tell her she is not welcome to land in my swimming pool, because she is just a silly goose guest who comes when she pleases and misplaces lasagna stained dishes on coffee tables.

Living without regrets. I woke up thinking about the snow geese. They were feeding off the just tilled cotton field outside of Scottsdale.
