THE WEE HOURS

the cigarette is finished
I can postpone no more
my wrestling with the night
pills referee my fight

tomorrow will be daylight
on fresh fallen snow
I will write
with a dead twig
on fresh fallen snow
then throw the twig
into the open back
of a departing garbage truck
that leaves tired tire tracks
on fresh fallen snow

the night’s fears
inconsequential tears
whispers from past years
weak fires routinely snuffed out
on fresh fallen snow
