Random Poem:

Tired of Sleeping

When I look closer
parts of my skin become orange
and inside of my eyes at 4 AM, within their perfect brown circles, orange glows wildy from the center.
Is orange not a cold color-
the color of street lamps, old warnings, pill bottles?
At night, I become as heavy as glass.
