4:43 a.m.

26 degrees
It's been two days
Since I've had any sleep
Three since I've spoken
With another human being
Light through a window
Shines on the opposite wall
That is all.

Jetlag stories
United Kingdom
Written in French
Set in America
The land of broken promise(s)

I watched the sun go down
And now it's coming up
Please let me sleep
Somewhere in the time between
I don't sleep
I dream
And it's the only opportunity
Real possibility
That we might meet
Please let me dream
We were in Spain...
In a school
Children were singing in French
About teamwork
And eating ice cream
And so were we
And I said I wish
That ice cream was me
I'm funny
In jet lag dreams
So many beautiful stories
Nobody reads
Except me
