Intrusions

Late at Night
by GC

Late at night
when all should be quiet
I wake up to
rain strained kidneys

Late at night
when all should be quiet
my lover snores
like an unmuffled diesel engine

Late at night
when all should be quiet
a raccoon tips
the garbage can

Late at night
when all should be quiet
two herons horsely croak
while squabbling out in the marsh

Late at night
when all should be quiet
I wake up --get up
and curse the din
