Manual for Sleep by Taylor Gould

the trick is to be still
so long
the hand absorbs its shadow
.
and blink only in threes
on odd seconds
…………counted loud
…………like the names of dead relatives
.
and then what dark you bled
bleeds back
and of course night falls
.
…………enjoy some lightness
…………floating on the turbid black current
