Good Morning Old Man

As old men in our mid-twenties,
let's be rebellious,
let's stay up past ten,
let's put down the good ol' book
we can't get away from,
and denounce sleepy eyes.

We'll give it up to
reading outside
the lines of our
circumpolar stars,
page-fold the space
in-between
and hold it out 'til dawn.

Don't breathe here!
Just wait...
for the august
of another sunrise.
