Incapable of napping

I have never been
one of those people
who nap.

I believe them
when they say
they duck in
and out of sleep,
refreshing their brains,
like I might get myself
a glass of water.

But I do not
have the skill.

It’s not that I can’t sleep,
it’s that I do it
too well.

My body only knows
how to burrow,
how to let go
and fall.

I tried today
but my brain rolled away
while I slept
and when I woke up,
only a little while later,
it took me so long
to find it.
