I dreamed I couldn't sleep
till an old wizard gave me a shell.
Hold it to your ear,
he said, and listen to the sea,
and I did,
and dreamed I fell asleep.
This takes insomnia
to a whole new level
because when I awakened
from dreaming about sleeping
I couldn't get back to sleep
and had to get up
and take this picture
of Mediterranean shells
I found in Italy
and make coffee
and write this poem
till the sun came up.
