poem to my insomnia


"Poem to be read at 3 a.m."

Excepting the diner
on the outskirts
the town of Ladora
at 3 a.m.
was dark but
for my headlights
and up in
one second-storey room
a single light
where someone
was sick or
perhaps reading
as i drove past
at seventy
not thinking
this poem
is for whoever
had the light on
