Catch Some Wide Eye

i am a creature of the dark


for those of us who live
in the crevasses
of the deep and dark
the moist and forgotten passageways
who tumble out of sorrows
into fresh miseries
who breathe in the musty dank air
only to exhale another polluted stench
replacing one 
with the other
morning comes too soon

for those of us
who twist on hobbled knees
offering prayers to phantoms of yesteryear
interceding on behalf of our thin
and famished souls
who tether themselves to shreds of absolution
in an unforgiving world
morning comes too soon

for those of us who lay
sweet and still
on the mossy green earth
where sleep is everything
and everything is sleep
morning comes too soon
