I've slept alone, standing, sitting, lying on the ground... alone in public places, at the beach, in the park, and in the church yard I've slept with friends, families, and strangers: at home, in inns,hotels, hostels, great houses, guest houses, rented houses, at work so exhausted. For a split second, I've slept steering behind my wheels my companion unaware. On the public transport, and at the airport too. Ooh my maiden trans-alantic flight in luxury slept with the fear of terror looming large and near I've slept free of the mental institutions that seemed more concerned with promoting psychotic drugs that have forgotten the science of psycho-therapy and are therefore best described as prisons for the mind I've slept in those God awful nursing homes for the elderly in that decrepit public shelter with vagabonds, and the poorest of the poor ...now all alone, on the ground, not with a sleeping bag, nor sleep-sack but buoyed with black plastic bags, and covered with a checkered stole of blue, black,lilac and green, super-imposed upon by the vast hue of the inky midnight blue.
