"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare

Bruce Robinson


Awakened By

And then it was gone, the night
I mean, replaced by something,
I think it was day, or what could

pass for day if you took light,
the inexplicable songs of crows, the hum
of Ford Falcons heading for work

and decided you may as well
leave your bed for something
new, something that could pass

for morning, as if you had anything
else, something pressing, it can't wait, to do.
