I love the wee and trippy hours of an
after-midnight when that glass slipper
lays glistering aloof, in soft moonlight
while weary dreamers poise inked quills

to carve their thoughts onto pale parchment
from a woozy head -- too early in the day
to be about one's inescapable routines
too late of a night to do all else but swoon.

This is the cherished witching-hour in a life
where most everything is held, transfixed
in the baffling clarity of glad cerebration--
intoxicated Muses dance in celebration.

This is very nice. Thank you for sharing it. The thoughts remind me of my late teens/early twenties when I could disappear into city night with friends. Creating without a care and escaping the bland routine of the day.

If i had one suggestion for this piece it would be to add a location. Images of a bar/cafe - something of that nature.

Oh I know this place. I have been there so many times.

These five lines are perfect.
