Late Night

Richard Outram
From:   The Essential Richard Outram. Erin, Ont. : Porcupine's Quill, 2011.


Awake, from perfect fear
in darkness far too sheer,
beside myself I hear,

thank God, familiar, near,
your constant tidal, clear
continuance of breath -

with which I will not rhyme.
My Dear. All. In good time.
