write a poem to decide on the way to be

and when you can't sleep
better write
at least a poem
that shapes the stars
and slippers the moon foot

and when you can't sleep
listen to a song
that carols the night in
and still the heart in it's bed of flesh
so that you can hear the music which is so far away


and when you can't sleep
simply listen to the words
that echo through the gap to you
tell yourself this is why we are alive
write a poem to decide on the way to be 


and when you can't sleep
forget the noise of politics and the games
of legal affairs   instead focus the mind on the pins
that are being stabbed into your head    these pins
situate the words that come from so far away to make this poem

and when you can't sleep
smile for this is the way to a song
these lost hours of sleep set a pretty stage
and the darkness that creeps on spidery web
lays out the platter of stars    you can't expect much more than this
