To Fall Asleep

Lay down in comfortable, soft clothing
or birthday suit

inside sheets soft enough to become invisible

beside fan or purifier for pure static noise

on top of pillows smooth enough to cradle tired thoughts

Feel the gravity of the world
not your situation

Feel the spinning

Beneath house
feel basement structure
miles of earth
lava core

Feel the earth incorporating your worries
into soil
fertilizing her people

Feel the air incorporating your molecules
until you no longer exist

Sweet surrender

Sweet sleep

Sweet dreams
