La chispa

It’s 5.30am and inexplicably
I am awake
I yield to the conscious realm
put on my cosy clothes
make a fire
cup of tea

something stirs inside me
embers cry out for air
vents opened
I write

then I hear whimpers and shrieks
of unpainted foxes in my den
but today I have computer work
tomorrow other plans
and then and then…

this is why I’m up at 5am!

the foxes haven’t gone to bed

so I must paint them.
