insomnia

my tongue was sticking to the insides of my teeth
i rolled over for a sip of water
and listened to the thunder

no shaking, rattling of the house,
just a soft, cloth bump -- like God drumming his neatly trimmed fingers on the dining room table

wide
awake

and all i could do was pray
for you
