    IT IS THE NIGHT
    That lets me down.

    When the house seems unknown,

    the body next to me unreachable.

    Some sinister recess has commenced

    and I must wait it out. Row my boat

    hard against the arcing tide, keep my head,

    pay the sandman twice. Welcome the nightly

    oblivion that sees me through those no-good hours

    between two and four when every failure rushes in—

    every folly confirmed.

    Big questions slated on the bathroom wall.

    Harassing every dust mote for answers; what have I done?

    Or worse, what haven’t I?

    This stupor could have no future.

    I am as flat and dumb as the kitchen floor.

    As heedless as the doors.

    As silent as the spoons

    No matter what you start out with you always end up with so much less.
