Night Crawling

The sun has not yet cracked the sky
But already broken I blink, I rise
Split and spilling before dawn
Last night’s crawlers ink themselves on
To the page from my body and brain
I cannot stay still with them wriggling
Sticking and prickling and sickening
My sleep, my diurnal functioning
Fucked up beyond all belief
I have become my own alarm
So all I can do is dump these worms
Until tonight when they return
