Twisting, turning sleep will not arrive.
Wide awake, you decide to go for a drive.
Get in the car and head out into the night
street lights are on but no one’s in sight.
Drive to the mountains where it is dark
find the clearing with the view, then park.
Leave the engine on to generate heat
pull the lever to adjust your seat.
Lying back you look at the stars
and for a moment you think you see Mars.
For four nights now you have parked here
to try to learn to control all your fears.
