I work till days-end,
get quarter-drunk at night.

At 1 a.m. eyes squint at a tongue-tide darkness;
I stare.

In time, the window’s curtain-edge will grow light.

Till then I see what's really always there:
death's slow lull,
contiguous day so close,

making all thoughts inane, but one that
questions where and when I shall cease
to exist.

-Pablowilliams 2/10/11 1a.m.

Night Crux
A dark place you've brought us to with this one. Thoughts of mortality are always more lucid and life-like when we've had a few. I loved the phrase "quater-drunk".

Good stuff,

@ Dave
Thanks for giving this a read; I'm glad you enjoyed it. Stark nights are happening more often than I care to talk about. I actually debated posting this- Glad I did.

Much love
