55 fiction returns: Insomnia

Huddled in a corner - like the walls have her mother’s arms- until sunrise.

“2 hours then the lamp goes off. Sleep can settle on fraught nerves.”

The comfort of daylight.

Lawns mowed, children running through water sprinklers, cars honking , joggers gulping water with loud gasps.

When their bustling ways can drown out other voices.
