a matter of days for both by Bogdan Dragos

this was needed

One more
strong coffee

one more
poem

and then he
would go to
sleep

it was
almost morning

he would sleep
during the day
and
return the next
night
to write
more poems

His lower back
was hurting
It was either the
kidney stones
or
the hemorrhoids
or both
or something entirely
new

Well,
it was all right
A writer writes
and a sick man
suffers
and they are quite
the same

At 44
his wife was 22
years younger than him

She would still
make him coffee
and cook his meals
and even read his poems

The ones that weren’t
about torturing
and murdering women and
children
even got published online

About eleven
of them

He was on
the right path

Success will reach him
earlier than
death will

It was a matter of
days for
both
