220 :: Dusk

it's the color of dusk

when I am captive

on the bed with a nursing toddler

who won't let go of my breast

and who won't let go into sleep

because the world is too full

of wonderful things

and he says "turn off the light"

but there is no light on

to turn off -

only the soft glow of blue dusk

filling the room,

begging for a poem,

calling me to write

before I am claimed by dreams

and night
