How To Rest

This is what you learned in school: that a body
in motion tends to remain
in motion.

When you are still enough and absolutely quiet
there is still the dull mutter 
of blood

moving beneath your skin, the whine
of nerves against wine-dark 

and no matter if you close your eyes
you’ll never stop dreaming
long enough 

to  remember when it stopped
or if it did.
