Poem about Naps in North, Siestas in South

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem celebrates the nap or siesta; small midday sleeps that are a part of humanity’s circadian rhythm, and are supposed to have lots of health benefits. Here’s the poem:

Circadian Rhythm, Poetic Decision
winter naps in northern hemisphere
toasty bright fire induced
daytime television seduced
recover brain, rest heart
escape cold, fresh start
mid-day lounging around, body-clock natural cycle
caught hot, relaxation turn
cool body, avoid sunburn
lunchtime hammock appeal
swing shady carefree feel
summer siestas in southern semicircle
A couple in a Hammock.
