Thank A Writer
you sleep to get your eight hours
and keep the yawns away
when earning your bread and rent.
meanwhile a lightbulb in the window
illuminates at night the three am goings-on
in a corner office apartment square
with a writer hunched at the desk
computer glowing against a silhouette
writing the things we would all be reading
in breakfast newspapers
and lunch break website pages.
Thanks for your digital attention!
