Poetry - 13th Edition

It’s 2 AM

My hair is wet

My air is frigid

My floor is ice

My floor is lava

My legs are noodles

My bed is spikes

My ears are bells

My breath is hot

My skin is hotter

My light is blinding

My fan is loud

My clock is louder

My project is unfinished

My pen is horizontal

My hand is still

My jaw is clenched

My soup is dry

My bread is stale

My eyelids are heavy

My pillow is lumpy

My blanket is newspaper

My morning is early

My mind is frantic

My sleep is later

My project is unfinished

My paper is clean

My target is far

My room is empty

My door is locked

My door is ajar
