Good Night, America

An apt verb, “drop”:
for pants
eagerly descending;
for birthing multiples;
for unloading sentiments;
for crashing hope;
for shock,
abrupt crack in sanity,
worldly pose or teeth;
for welcomed sleep.

To drop:  to plunge
from every day occurring
into sudden, psychic free fall.

How like a waiting spider
we bid acquaintances
drop in
and hang around.
