as [the Earth]
I remember with pleasure my home
and family I remember with pleasure
having a good night’s sleep I hold it indefinitely
until it is revoked When I am sleeping
I am spinning but not precessing
like the body’s poles my motion is imperceptible
If I sleep more than 12 hours a day
I sleep over my happiness a trick that can only
be performed in space
as [the Moon]
I am an oddity a loony
From the Old French lunatique
From the belief that my changes
cause intermittent insanity
From the last time I was silly
but in a dangerous way
