<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman; min-height: 15.0px">&nbsp;</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">One third of each day spent here,&nbsp;</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">equals one third of an entire life.</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">Two thirds of that third</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">most likely this square will be shared.</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">Coil springed pad in a sea of room</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">to set down and dream on.</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">No wheels or wings it has</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">but travel is its target.</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">From womb to crib to cot to grave--</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">somewhere in there--thrown&nbsp;</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">from single to queen, we bump&nbsp;</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">and collide like twins in utero</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">on the crest of stormy sleep.</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">After one third of two thirds of that third,</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">spent boxed in a seven by seven,</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">lynched out of falling, snagged by snores,</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">and dreaming your elbow is chewing&nbsp;</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">my lower back, I want to push&nbsp;</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">you off the bed but I don&rsquo;t.</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman"><i>They say if you hit the ground&nbsp;</i></p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman"><i>when you&rsquo;re dreaming</i></p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman"><i>you never come back.</i></p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">How do we jump from wakefulness</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">and land safely on this budding swoop of sleep?</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">We lie flat on our beds. That&rsquo;s how.</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">I hope dying is like that. The last time</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">my spirit lies flat on its bones--</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">calcium pad in this sea of sky</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">to set down and dream on,</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">no wheels or wings, but still able to fly--</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">I hope dying is like that. Spirit, two thirds life&nbsp;</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">the other third a dream,</p>
<p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Times New Roman">without your elbow in my back please.</p>
