Rage Poetry: I'm Sure It's Tough to Work at Night


i'm sure it's tough to work at night.
but
moving furniture,
pelting scores of marbles onto the floor,
body-slamming your Labrador,
or whatever goes on up there
(& i'm not sure i really want to know)
is not a 4am thing to do.
no.
it sends me into a rage of a thousand fiery things.
i hope,
someday,
when you just want to sleep at night like humans do,
you are serenely dreaming of beauty, hope, and light
until you are abruptly awaken
by a sound that you mistake for the beginning of the end-of-days
and that you
never
sleep
again.


(This is a problem every. single. night. Times are hard for light sleepers.)
