Tired is a cape in the night-
dark, heavy fur whose warmth stifles

Tired is a long tunnel-
damp, with no lights and sudden turns

It's the woods, windy
and full of sounds of animals, rustling-

snow that melts
and freezes at the same time

a viola bow frayed
from a hundred years of use

Tired from the inside out
I need new words for tired
