sand duning (a tonal drawing written in poetic form)

sand duning
(reclining serpentining)

i know i oughta wannuh doing
something else besides this here
and sometimes that be what i gone do
i up’n’say it right now!
i gone do’it RIGHT NOW like’it’so!
. . . but something here in me scared
wannuh sleep some more i wannuh sleep
make my knees they weak
then my back it sore my pocket need more
wannuh sleep some more i wannuh sleep
and don’t matter no way what i say
i know Rome wont built in no one day
i better get some more rest
so when the right time come
i gone get right up
!and it gone all be done!
