It is an afterthought

that haphazard ending

as day runs out of itself

we are careless

with these darkened hours


to be thoughtless

to lose our sense of purpose

in a punishing neglect

of our own healing

choosing to ignore


in favor of distraction

forgetting the exact science

of winding down

while our bodies cry out for rest – Caroline A. Slee
