last night
instead of sleeping

it was important

I tried to recount all the places I slept 
as a teenager
so I didn’t have to go home
Home was that hard for me then
Counting doorways and men’s beds like sheep
but not sweet
Like old doors creaking open
Foyers to apt buildings
Back seats
Under trees in the park.
So tight
the morning sun
would strum me
decades later
I still
can’t sleep
without drugs
and I never  ever
ever miss the dawn.

risk what it is to say

this isn’t working for me.
 I need my life to change.

what is it to whisper
so softly
 we’re gonna get through this
 everything is gonna be ok

what it is in the daylight
risk hoping in the daylight
whispers for the night.
