Nighttime Ghazal

Green light on my watch 4:01. Turn on TV
There is nothing for me here.

The couch is bathed in blue electric light
Infomercials. I am too fat right here.

Birds, sleepless in the greying dawn
There is no music for me here.

I am dreamless. I am too bright awake
No rest. The night is endless here.

Eamonn, get up, the sun is on the roofs
not that there's anyone singing for you there.
