Nap State of Mind

Starting to think the child
is already picking up
my worst habits

like staying up too late
for no real reason
except in this case

it’s the middle of the day
and a nap that need not
be abandoned yet

that will no doubt affect
the rest of the day such
as it is with little rest

until eyes so tired
they won’t let sleep arrive
might need to stay up

a little later to describe it
