I Prefer Sleep.

by Angie Jenkins

Resistance is futile.

The alarm clock cannot defend itself

as I throw the ringing annoyance


against my lilac painted wall.

It crumples and shatters



I am victorious.


Author's Note: My rendition of "hitting the snooze button." It's proven to be quite effective.
