12:01 AM

My nose is running
Away;
It’s midnight and the Z’s won’t stay
To serenade my mind and distract it
From the drifting dewy day.

So I peer at rectangles of light
And pray that when I close my eyes,
They will shut to stay;
Just while earth is fasting from
The sun.
(This happens every day-
Night, and I can’t escape the no-
Light, but what can I do? The mind wants
To think
As the heart wants
what it wants, I think.)
