An Argument For Sleep

Rating: 5.0
I intended to write a poem of time.
The celestial seesaw
of sun and moon
toe-tapping the earth
marking their turn,
wiping their stardust feet
and washing up for dinner.

But the poem is written -
perfect verses
punctuated by big bangs

Go, Lori! I like this lots - you know the score. Just a thought: consider beginning a new stanza right after 'It is written' - I think this will lend the poem more impact (?) But it's your baby, and as such it is pretty dang perfect as is. Esther : ]
