Poem for Poetry Month

Reading Before Bed

 

Stacked hardbacks askew

On the nightstand.

Collins. Marici. Alleyne.

Jimmy Carter’s poetry

Unread, too.

Collections: The Manatee and West Branch

Tiny book of sonnets

With smooth binds.

Fresh with ink and glossy cold cover

Perfect for a night cap.

A drink of words –

Mixed like a martini.

Slightly different with each poem,

Recognizable as the favored flavor.
