Boneless and Bible Lack

It's 9:30pm and I can barely hold my head up. This is the problem with late June. If I can't have a nap, I lose the capacity to be functional far too early. I suppose the only thing for it is to "nap" now and hope I wake up early. Like when the eastern sky starts to glow, say, which is about 4:15am in these parts. I'd chalk my torpor up to my advancing age or my chronically underperforming respiratory system, but I know that most people around here experience some version of this enervation during the Sonoran summer. They really should legislate a siesta. Maybe the new border wall they're building can be bent into a circle delimiting a place of seasonal slumber.
