Joseph O. Legaspi

Somewhere someone rises

far earlier than you before

the faintest glimmer blues

the darkest dark wakens

without alarm without body

roused by the nightingales

neighbor friend or stranger

who hasn’t seen his sunlit

children faces a cold sink

oh caffeinated sleepwalker

march daily industry with

necessity down one flight

then up two is heaven in

someone warm beside you
