Early to bed

 

 

,
cuz the sky’s got an early
………………………(red)
warning system that says we’re
broken, that all this unspoken
thunder might just crack us open
before we’ve had time to fully rise.

 

..In November, we poem. This one’s a day late. Cuz life.

    I really dig this. It reads almost as a bookend to my Wake-up call poem.

    The internal rhyme scheme gave it an urgency and a sense of movement. Lovely poem.
