Tick Tock

tick tock
pocket watch
tick tock
pillow top

eyes follow
swinging chain
shifting vision
look again

heavy eyes
full of sand
can’t stay open
see dreamland

droning voice
getting drowsy
intonation
feeling cloudy

tick tock
like a clock
tick tock
never stops

soothing voice
feeling numb
lolling head
might succumb

counting sheep
three, then four
off to sleep
close the door
