Ode to Sleep

Sticky red eyes,
Slow and sluggish brain,
Sleep beckons me,
Dreams welcome me.

The world blinks away,
My head falls down.
Just then: I hear a raised voice,
My eyes open,
avoiding a hit on the table.

I stare at the table,
Sighing, resign myself to study,
The teacher drones on,
I keep listening, sleepily.
