Legacy: There is always poetry

There is always poetry

to keep you up at night,

when you’d ought to be sleeping.

When your heart is overflowing,

and your mind wishes to keep it company.

There is always poetry

to give you nightmares

or lucid dreams

once you’ve finally fallen

into the daze of night.

There is always poetry,

always coffee and a pen

to write down what your fingers remember,

to trace over old love and write down a new girl’s number.
