My Midnight Muse

My Midnight Muse

My Midnight Muse comes unannounced.
Called by lack of time to write
Or writing time that overflows
And fills my mind with story.

My Midnight Muse likes cereal
(Kashi)
With strawberries (sliced) and milk (very cold).
She likes one lamp, not too bright;
A good pen;
A notebook;
Pages to read, revise;
Perhaps an outline;
And, occasionally, a lap top.

She does not like daytime things
Like coffee
Or even chocolate.
No email, telephone, shoes,
Dresses, makeup, or showers.
She likes words.
Served plain
Like dreams of running.
