Less Rest for the Restless (#11)

There is a pattern before retiring to bed


Aside from brushing teeth and laying down thy head


First a repast followed by amusement and play


A nightcap to smooth over rough edges of the day


Maybe a puff or two of the herbal persuasion


Change into something more comfy for the occasion


A nightgown, or t-shirt and a pair of old shorts


Make the best sleepwear and evening cohorts


I plump up my pillows and smooth out the sheet


Preparing my dreams to converge and meet


Neatly within the safety of my four bedroom walls


Except my wild heart is restless for adventure calls
