Sleepless in Errington

Reviewing birthing injustices
and strange family situations
has left me gasping for sleep
late in a strange dark bed

The silence in this house
in the woods is natural
and therefore strange

O for a midnight siren
and rumbling inconsiderate
mufflers as an excuse;
here I have only psychology.
