Sleep shelled around verses. Sleep shelled around waves. Sleep bookended by translations. Sleep bookended by sea changes. Sleep along the odyssey. Sleep through the odyssey. Sleep to escape the inevitable. Sleep to engage the imperceptible. Sleep keeps a body waiting at home. Sleep welcomes a body on strange soil. Sleep until daylight purifies the page. Sleep until daylight bleaches the bones. Sleep along the bow of a paper boat. Sleep across a lullaby on a pliant lotus. And only awaken once you are certain the rags of rebirth may be burned along with the overdue notices tying you to the certainty of earth.
