Taking It Off At Night by George Bishop

Taking It Off At Night by George Bishop

Poetry, Vol. 1.2, Sept. 2007

So, the older I become
the more I’m mistaken
for what’s left
near the pillow.
My watch lays face
down on the nightstand
looking more like an empty
oar lock. My wallet stays
an arm length away
ready to pull us both
back into whatever circle
a drop of morning makes.

Oh, one other thing–
the change from years
of heavy drinking floats
on the ceiling. Or is it
the sky? I know
sometimes it’s not
enough.
