Zzz

I just read the umpteenth article purporting to present scientific certainty that you can't "catch up on sleep" by sleeping longer on the weekend.

I know this is fake news.
Because my weekend snooze
Is sufficiently long and deep
To make up plenty of sleep.

The Hawk

Here in the winter
When people talk
About our fast wind
They call it the hawk.

It swoops right in
Where your flesh is bare
And rips at your skin
With cold, cold air.
