Nocturnal Inspiration White light spires glow in magnificence from one small candle. Flickers of fallout land on my lap while writing a brand new poem in brilliant quietness. One fanciful flame keeps me wakeful between the fire and the flash, between nightfall and morning. The Trucker on the 401 Roadie in red shirt, black hat, yellow teeth and fingers rides the lane noisy rollicking steamroller will not be swayed. Sashays down the highway flicking sardonic ashes under exalted wheels with savoir faire. Pulls away my thoughts trail smoke and exhaust rise in chorus sing to the cumbrous sawhorse cutting up the road. In the common calamity of road rage, hurled rocks, guns and hunting knives, the trucker on the 401 rolled up shirtsleeves and windows continues to drive with reckless abandon.
