It’s 3 A. M.

come in again
are you here yet?
it’s tea time in China
roll another cigarette
the story is over
did we have a happy end?
just so many dawns before the light
a new beginning
what the sacred
who the profane
will it be the last hug best
or the hug that lasts the best?
forgive me i am playing now
memorable days
they we only gazed
as our fanciful flight flew
on wings of our own making
ilk of singing, ilk of birds
oh no, lost again
hear those dogs chatter?
arf arf arf
arf arf
doggy Morse code?
have a cup of Joe Huey
here comes a wake up smile.
