Enough

When will we be free
enough to decide when
it’s okay to not sleep
for an entire night

when will we be smart
enough to actually eat
breakfast lunch and dinner
and not at 3 p.m. and 3 a.m.

when will we be safe
enough to close
our eyes and ungrasp
our hands

when will we be there,
where the knot in our
stomachs has unraveled
into a long, thin string?
