I don't ordinarily write poetry, but I fell asleep listening to the Aesop Rock last.fm channel, and when I woke up, this came out of my fingers.

Falling Asleep Listening to Aesop Rock

No Caption Provided

There’s radioactive spiders laying eggs in my ear

Except instead of drinking blood they make my dreams disappear

So I swap sleep for Coffee, black and without depth,

No Starbucks cream curl spiral to fantasy death

Behind my eyelids Technicolor dervish drinks to my health

Then dances drunkenly, spitting spinning pictures of stealth

Drunken monkey Shaolin footfalls deaf in my ears

Round and round and round until they disappear

So I swap sleep for Coffee, black and none shall pass these pitiless depths,

Sun Ra soundtracking speed lines from my Getaway Car—away my fantasy death!

I awaken shaken beneath white cotton sheets, the picture of health

And turn Ian off and get up quiet, trying not to wake her—be with me, stealth.

@bumpyboo: Thank you. I may revise for smoother rhythm on closing lines; sounds awkward out loud.
