You need to get some sleep...

Eye
am a shaggy beast on ragged hooks.
Deranged
by the sweet draught of
sleep deprivation.
Tied together
by coffee and cigarettes.
Wired, tired and expired.
It is required, to get it done.
To and from work, I sleep like a zombie on a slab.
Swayed by the carriage in a nervous rest.
Talk to me
and my mouth finds it hard to stop dancing.
And my brain
diverges into imaginative flight
as quickly as a startled gull.

You need to get some sleep...

Artist's Description

It just writhed out of my head.
A friend of mine asked if I’d had a chance to see the Dark Knight yet.
I caused me to stop and reflect on the past months.
And that reflection is what I started typing.
I’m working on my own comic, creating an interactive reader for it, working on my folio, raising my kids, looking for design jobs, finishing my major project for the last week of October and working in a book-store.

I’ve been getting by on an average of five hours sleep a night.
But on the bright side my work will look all the better for the effort.
