Creative Writing, OldVenue

Creative Writing: G

How are you feeling? The baby hair
stuck to your forehead with sweat
has made the letter G. The first light
is un-creasing over the city,
and it’s good to know that the city
knows nothing at this hour,
conscious at a moment of innocence,
the moment before your face
decides it wants warm water.

How did you sleep? The night before last
I laid on my back and made maps
of the plaster on your ceiling,
icing swirls in an endless trap
of overlap, until there’s little left to do
but open the curtain and face it,
challenge it, punch the glass and dare
the day to make you feel better
than you have ever felt before.
