Unplugged for a Minu(e)t(e)
Sometimes I just wish I could turn my brain off,
Close myself off from the incessant pacing of thoughts―
Back and forth and back and forth, across the inside of my skull,
Tirelessly marching out a beat in unfaltering four-four time

Let me waltz into a dream, or better yet, pause in silence!
A moment of respect for Sleep, too often ignored
Because your soldiers have no time for― "MARCH!"
