Childhood artifact: sleep
On left side, perpendicular 
To mattress and pillows.

Recovery from treatment
Interferes with habitual, 
Comforting sleep position.

Usual tossing and turning,
Now abrupt shift away from
Discomfort to default modes.

Tiredness lulls me to dreamland,
Irrespective of proprioceptive 
Positioning--sleep, glorious sleep.
