In Some Nambulence Social

~

Awake! at 3:30

  it’s way much too early

for a still world outside,

  dark and plain.

 

I look out my window

and every tenth window,

  one out of ten,

is the same.

 

A face at each window,

checking the windows

of others, to see

  who’s germane.

 

We wave to each other,

return to our covers,

to arise in the later 

  A.M.

 

And then at 4:30,

when it’s ‘still’ pretty early,

ten other

  wakeful

  do the same.

  2. I used to feel like I was the only one up in the middle of the night when I was nursing my babies. It’s a sobering feeling.
