Rookie (December 10,1954)

Six AM


Six AM
The stars fade away
and I am still drinking
looking for the way


Six AM
The sky turning gray
Another drunken dawning
of another empty day

Six AM
The sun coming up
Still awake, still thinking
of the price I'll pay

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
