Favorite Quote:
"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed." -Ernest Hemingway

Doors open to sunset, the
last tomorrow-
do you need light to see?

And behind, darkness-
a burned out luminescent;
where is your reflection?

The crack in the doorway
lines with your feet
and you step forward

leaving an unmade bed
and yesterday's feeling in steps
toward an empty room.

The author's comments:
I wanted the shape of this poem to stand out especially- the simple squared lines possess a certain steadiness, a certain rhythm.
