oh sleep where art thou

in some bizarre ritual apparently designed to keep the whole neighborhood from getting adequate REM sleep last night a bunch of young whippersnappers would set off a few fireworks every hour on the half-hour from 1:30 to 4:30am. why they couldn't have used them up in one big conflagration at 1:30 and then let us sleep the rest of the night I do not know. why do people do this sort of thing? and why weren't we wakened sleepers streaming from our front doors to strangle the perpetrators? probably because they'd set off four or five and then stop, allowing us to slip back into slumber before they started again.


by 5:30 they must have passed out because I did not waken again until 8.

what else was I going to say.
