Poetry by Josiah Morgan: “The Bee Gees Sing Me to Sleep”

Funny the things you make time for.

vodka
reruns
a million hours
sleep
the city on a good night
ironic
an intermission
grindr babe in the back of the car
chic new looks on city twinx
the city on a bad night
vodka
reruns
quickly, misread me
sleep
a million hours
alexander mcqueen
two pizzas
restocking things you’ve lost
the city on a bad night
the city on a bad night
me
a bad book
a pretty good book
beyoncé shaped learning curve on the piano
a video of a beyoncé shaped learning curve on the piano
the city on a bad night
being sick
staying home
reruns
vodka
vodka

Funny
Tells good jokes
Vodka jokes you make time for
funny

Make time for
The funny things you tell
Jumpsuit straightjacket
Fits

funny

The time you make things for
me

Vodka
