The muscle that lets me sleep


             I am so envious
that I tell my nervous to calm down,
calm down Celia calm down, calm down Celia calm down
to Funtown and run up the steps to fall frowns
which too numerous let that pesky weatherman
give me six months of winter 
on top of my debts and wet I'm still shaking
swallowing the notes they passed
like kidney stones and it's hardly a drop in the bucket
             because the neighbors play their flutes when they rut it
I turn it into an animal or food
content to name it pantene nut
or ambrosia to be nursed to many other young
