Wake, Stand, and Deliver

Even the sleep-impaired, sleep-deprived,
incoherent insomniac must comply:
there will be no exceptions made,
no exemptions granted. Even though
the earliest light only magnifies
the nothingness,
it is precisely that effect
which is to be recorded.
Even though unable to close an eye or
—even if able, ultimately disinterested in doing so—
it is nonetheless required to at least reorder,
record and report the morning;
forbidden to reject the task,
and strictly forbidden
to surrender to recalcitrance.
