Layers Of Meal

Night is a black coat to wear against an alley wall

Night is a black coal to blow on and get orange

 Night is a black cheese to get one's teeth around

Sleep is meant to be scraped up like shaved cheese off a cutting board

Sleep is meant to be strained through cheese cloth and rinse for impurity

Sleep is meant to be sold in squares like cut-rate cheese with bad crackers

More coffee to toast the consciousness

More coffee to assuage the conscience

More coffee to ignite the conspiracy
