The Now Room

The dog is asleep, black and white,
in
Her cushion bed on the floor,
and
My eyes hurt because it's two
in
The morning and I'm sitting
a-
Wake, dazed by the music of strange
5/4
Signatures, pianos and drums
and
Other expressions holding me
from
The dark outside, and I think
to-
Morrow might arrive before
i'
M ready. Oh God, touch me
in
A pinprick to bring goodbye
to
Tired eyes and send me
sen-
Sibly to bed, before I lose
all
Of everyone I've ever
been.
