Insomniac in Orange Pajamas by David Oestreich

Insomniac in Orange Pajamas

Sometimes I hear you laughing as you sleep
and fear some witty fellow’s joined your dream.
Though in the morning you’ll deny each peep,
sometimes I hear you, laughing as you sleep,
imagining a lover’s vulgar, cheap
suggestions. Girl, it makes me want to scream
sometimes. I hear you laughing as you sleep
and fear; some witty fellow’s joined your dream.

by David Oestreich

Editor’s Note: Why orange pajamas? Why not blue, or red? The detail gives this triolet a dose of realism independent of the narrator’s frustration.
