Why is the mind always the most active at 4:00 am?

In the witching hour of night, I often find myself

Contemplating my meager existence

While staring at the ceiling fan,

Accompanied by a soundtrack of crickets,

And taking drags on a Number 27


The spontaneity of these thoughts

Is like jazz

And Iā€™m adrift on the strangeness of it all

What must it be like

To get some sleep

When one lays their head down to rest?
