Excerpt

Interruption

It is the deepest part of night.
Resisting the exit from sleep,
eyes swollen shut,
still half within a dream,
Nature calls.
It takes some while
to transition
from sedentary rest
into just enough awareness
to sense the danger of retreat
back to the pillow.
So, the trek begins from bed
in the moonless dark.
A hand extends,
an eye's substitute
to navigate the path ahead--
past armoire
past door jamb
trembling, reaching for
the blinding light.
It is within this faint condition,
business done,
that comes another invitation--
the lure of sinking back to
dark oblivion,
supplanted
by the pen.
Into the unseen dawn,
scratches on a page
recount
a journey won--
one more day on Earth,
one more sun.
