I write a lot of poems
while I am fast asleep.

I wake in the middle
of the night and transcribe 

them on my phone,
impressed by their sheer

brilliance. When I wake in
the morning I remember

that I wrote an awesome
poem, but somehow, they

never seem to hold up
in the light of day. They

aren’t much more than
mindless babbling that

makes no sense at all.
I need to figure out how

to read them after I have
fallen back asleep so that

I can use a decoder
ring to unlock their

meaning. Then I can
figure out how to drag

them from the dark into
the light so everyone else

can see all these great poems
I keep talking about.
