Falling Asleep At 5: 30 - Poem by Charles Chaim Wax

in the afternoon
the sweetest part of my life
no solutions
life stained
an adamantine wrinkle
in my heart
wanting oblivion

    On which side of 5: 30 was this poem written, Charles. It 'feels' like one of those nap inspired 'things'. Nice. (Report) Reply
