writing in the morning

words, images lie around all night
leftovers in the gutters of my brain
waiting to fly into combinations
that breathe meaning onto the monitor

how prosaic is that?

I can write at night
or in the pre-dawn
sputterings of night
after fitful sleep

how prosaic is that?

maybe writing is
a brain misfire
that creates
divergent thought

how prosaic is that?

the moving cursor blinks
and having blinked
moves on

how prosaic is that?
