day-down way

damn the cliche when i say that 
i lay my head in the fold of this book 
and how i look forward to the end of day
and the company of the poets down
all their wending ways 

and how i long to write the one
poem that has teased me all these years
that i might use it as a flannelette pillow
and cobwebbed in it deep to sleep 
the sleep of the damned
and be damned i will
