Midnight at Green Hedges


It’s midnight at Green Hedges.
I’m sleeping.

Next door, someone (the neighbor)
Is doing physio exercises
And can’t get to sleep.

Across the road,
Someone is delivering mail.
The postman sure has a very weird schedule.

And down the street
Is a drugged up woman.
She’s running crazily,
Flailing her arms about, shouting:
“I WANT MORE HEROIN! ! ! ”
She sure does.
She sure does.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
