Night Owls - Nov. 26, 2022

I know you night people

don’t wait for moonlight

the sun and moon

don’t do much for you

you seem drawn from gloomy place

to gloomy place

compelled by some force

in the blackness

still asleep

long after dawn

you prefer to awaken

work celebrate create

talk or whatever you do

inside the giant shadow of night

puzzlingly too simple

perhaps you use the dark

to look for something else

like those that avoid streetlights

to see one particular constellation

maybe for you it’s easier

to walk blind to sense

what glows through the gauze

then lift the veil

to be blinded again

you could like me

be searching for a brilliance

you’ve glimpsed inside you

a thousand times more passionate

than the sun’s lips on the moon
