Words of the Night

Words spin in head
sleep is about
to take over what’s said
and turn it to dreams

feet twice normal size
blisters bemoan the lengths
the legs have traveled from home
to neighborhoods hidden

in gems of streets cobbled
by years of brick and iron
and stoops beckoning visits
new wows on every crossed corner

Statue, Empire, Lombardi’s today
filling my life with magical moments
packing each breath with a hope for play
and sending wishes into the cosmos

half-conscious, lids heavy, eyes
closed and cracked open
just enough for these words
to get ready for tomorrow’s motion

here in the city that never sleeps
I fight the call but lose clearly
overtaken by weeks of insomnia
the body saying stop writing…

and start dreaming dreams

to make them come true
