“I Sat Each Night Here” with audio. Prose poem written and read by Stephen J. Dawson Jr.

  I sat each night here; same watch keeping time. The same sun will soon climb and dim out my cigarette to press her soft silhouette against my warm linen. Unlike other women, I watch her in bed. She lurks in my head and poetry floods my mind. So, I write them in letters that I’d like to send but my spine is as thick as my pen.

  1. Yes. This is sublime. Sensual and dark.
    “…She lurks in my head and poetry floods my mind…”
    I get that, except substitute the she for he, and I could have written this myself.

    1. I’m glad you like it! I posted after writing another poem last night about a woman so this seemed apropos.
