Pythagoras guide to sleep.

Pythagoras guided you to a mountain of sleepless 

nights counting jacks dreams and rhyming 

Backwards words such as opiated pills 

Has this moonlight worn as thin as it has 

for me wandering around the Poppy’s 

that rose around conservatoire.

——

A Chorus spent writing prose to Simmering purples 

As old scores chalk the ground for dry whites 

In the gas house of scorched earth 

under burning Sun 

have Poppy’s ever seeded the answer
——-

did the guide to polishing shoes help 

with those Pythagoras Equations 

or solve those sleepless nights.

——–

that Occur when lost sleuthing seven phases

the cult of the mauseleum light.
