Again I used metallic marker pens to present the text. The panels on the other hand show a generic character going through the turmoil’s of insomnia. There are only three panels and the text takes up as much space as the illustrations. This is because I believe the text here does as much to move the story forward as the illustrations do.
This is another short Comic Book Poem where we deal with insomnia and the inability to sleep. Various factors can cause different people to stay awake. Sex, too much of it or even a lack of it can very much a source of insomnia.

saw you naked, Uptight
Here is a teaser/preview for the Second Comic Book Poem in Series 9. It is called Retina Scan and will go live on 26 September 2016. Check back at the blog to see the final Comic Book Poem.
The text for this Comic Book Poem comes from a real life scene I witnessed of a woman attached to a drip, smoking cigarettes in a no smoking zone outside of a hospital. I formed the scene as a short Poem which is a haiku of sorts, although not a formal traditional one. Following Comic Book Poems in this series will take a similar structure.
