LATE FITZGERALD IN THE THIRD HOUR

 

“In the real dark night of the soul it is always three o’clock in the morning.”

 – F. Scott Fitzgerald –

 

***

 

Three o’clock in the morning:

The writer starts to clean up his style.

For even in the real darkness of the soul:

He’s unwilling to let the world’s ordinary poison seep into his work.

 

 

Surrounded by empty bottles of gin / piles of white paper on his desk:

He’s ready now to grab the pen.

But whatever he will write tonight:

It all can be crossed out within a second.

 

 For it’s three o’clock in the morning, and in the real darkness of the soul:

It always will.  

 

 POSTSCRIPTUM

(Written that night / crossed out that night)

 

Three o’clock in the morning:

 

Some things will never change

while

Some things will never be the same.
