Tonight, I Will Write (By Black Angel)


By Charles Banks, Jr.

I will write a poem tonight!

My pen will glide on the leveled

waves of this paper before me—

to explore the motionless

oceans of my mind.

I will sit to my desk tonight,

after supper, when all the children

have been tucked away—

When my beloved Sophia has blown

out the candles in the living room

and rests her restless soul.

I will look into blank space

and search for a glimmer of

inspiration—hours will pass,

unaccounted for; lost dreams

will suddenly float ashore.
