5am again spotted
infinite sleep mixed with hunger
time enough to let explosive
revelation wash over me
then drift back into sleep
but there’s a certain
set of sounds a chorus
that fill my head
frightful and delightful
movie scores in majesty
hungry cats in harmony
bird songs curious
with the rising sun
single cars pass from a
tired and hurried town
almost late
almost dreaming
release and the
click of a lighter
in this moment the world seems
simple and less stale
no cellphones microwaves or computers
no police sirens or alarm clocks
just a cigarette head down on a pillow
with an open window
