I’m sitting up at four AM,

Writing more verses down…

Hearing the cars test local speed traps

By high-speed blast-offs through town.

Humming in our cupola from fans

Helping to circulate air…

Once I thought we could look out those windows

When we had first moved here!

There are no stairs to the top,

For ventilation those windows can open…

I know for safety there is no platform

But years before, I was hoping!

Getting tired as I write,

My agitation slowing down…

Pouring out the mind’s ideas

Puts feet back on solid ground.

Now I lay me down to sleep,

My C-PAP’s running fine…

Writing down my prayers and hopes

Will do ’til waking time.


–Jonathan Caswell
