poem by: Q. Ramirez
Written on Apr 10, 2015


this nightly insomnia that defeats
it opens wide the eyelids to stare at walls 
over the day and why he cannot conquer
what he is afraid of?
it is the persistence of jinn demons
that have already presaged his nocturnal
		                                                                       of death in bed
