"Awaking in New York" by Maya Angelou
Curtains forcing their will
against the wind,
exchanging dreams with
seraphim. The city
drags itself awake on
subway straps; and
I, an alarm, awake as a
rumor of war,
lie stretching into dawn,
unasked and unheeded.
"Quatrain of the Body's Sleep" by Annie Dillard
I lure sleep. I bait sleep in with my white throat.
I pretend to be asleep. Then everything happens at once.
Sleep wraps me round in his dim coat;
I weep; you leap from your corner and dance.
