Poetry Train: The End of the Day


I wrote this during block 4's journal writing a week and a half ago. The topic was: the end of the day

The End of the Day

Settles like a deflated balloon
around the ankles
of the night

and I kick it
out of the way
into the corner

of used time.
Then I get into
my waterbed

and read for a bit
until I feel
the weight

of my eyes
sagging into
sleep.

Phew, I like the way you kick the title - although I wouldn't want to get into a waterbed, in case I got wet.

The imagery in this is so neat! Love that you kick day's into the used time corner and revamp for the next phase. Great.

I never thought of it like that, but pretty much the way do it - apart from the waterbed.
