Counting Greguerías Sheep

Roncar es tomar ruidosamente sopa de sueños.
— Ramón Gómez de la Serna

To snore is to slurp the soup of sleep.
Our dreams are drams distilled from the deep.

The clock ticks off the seconds. Why
      not firsts?
they cry.
It’s late, they have a date to keep.

Insomnia: in sum, I lie.
      I truly try,
but still can’t seem to make that leap.
