Forty Winks

These forty winks, I long
A colloquial today.
It means that I am gone,
Gone, but not too far away.

A subjective impose
One I dare no matter where
Only a little doze.
No matter the couch or chair.

It's just a pinch of rest,
A withdraw from boring things.
A recollect at best.
A slip into better things

It is that little cause,
Soothes my weary older life
A helpful little pause
But irritates my wife.

She nudges me to blink
I do so with vacant stare
She passes me a drink
And I hold it unaware.

There is no harm in forty winks
It's better than some forty drinks.

Sy, I think many men take a nap with their eyes open while their wives are talking. It's the natural order of things. Good work.

Munda,
Thank you.
Balladeer,
I believe you are right.
Nan,
Have one on me and send me the bill.
Denise,
Mixing them up would be a good idea.
That is winks and drinks.
Systematic,
Thanks for the cute.
