I don't know that I have insomnia until around 2:00 am :)

Andrew, you are right, I have revised it from "midnight" to "two am".

Kai, thanks.

This poem was written in the "from another perspective" style. Although it can be interpreted several different ways, it was originally conceived as an anthropomorphic perspective of a "road".

Imagine what it would be like to be a road with cars running back and
forth on you all day long. Come night time the traffic dies down except for the odd insomniac out driving around...

it's a good ku without it, but your explanation adds another layer to it...

That's when--following the road analogy, you through a sharp curve at the insomniac!! Very good!
