Night Owl

The battery

on my laptop has died,

maybe it’s telling me

to rest my eyes.

It has passed two a.m.

and I really

should go to bed,

but there’s still so much

I haven’t read.

I plug the charger

into the socket on the wall

and go out

to the kitchen

to listen for the kettles call.

A mug of strong hot coffee

will awaken my senses,

but in the morning

I will suffer the consequences.
