Poets shop at Wal-Mart at 2 in the morning

Eat IHOP at 3

Sleep til Noon

Awake to visions of pens

Dancing on their beds

Debate the relevance of the political system in this country

Lament the suffering of children everywhere

Find time to pay bills

Love

Eat lunch

Rage against the machine

Buy new notebooks

Catch up on current disorder

Go to class

Drive home

And fall asleep

To visions of pens

Dancing on their beds
