2008: My Writing - Poem by Tom J. Mariani

Somtimes I need to write
At 3 AM
When the house is
Dark and quiet

But the LEDs
Me work

Often I need music
Sometimes my mixes
Then a single artist's CD
Or random automated all-night FM radio

There are times
My writing needs a boost
From Starbucks or Peets
Soft music and socialization

I am inspired too
By the shouts of children
Fighting over who got
The best toy with their Happy Meal

I live in this world
I draw from this world
What I write I write
About this world and others

    you paint pictures
    with your words
    about the world around you...
    just as I.

    I think we
    may be

    Thanks for the read
    and the art...
