There’s a fowl in the pen—
just woke up, waiting ten
minutes more to see the sun before he speaks.

The dream that he wakes me from,
it was the only good one
that I’ve had in a couple of weeks.

Waking up is hard to do.

There’s nothing out here I like.
When did day turn to night?
When did I lose my sight?
When did I lose my eyes?

I start talking real mean,
and I am pissing caffeine.
I can’t sleep—
I just dream that I’m asleep.

Waking up is hard to do.


from Sticking; Not Stuck, released August 5, 2015
Drums & spoken voice on “Waking Up” are sampled from some phone videos of my youngest cousin Dara Reisner from when she was probably four or five years old.
– Thanks for being a noisy kid when it was way too early, Dara.
