Morning Arrives (Wright)

Morning Arrives, by Franz Wright (1953-)

Morning arrives
by limousine: the tall
emaciated chairman


of sleeplessness in person
steps out on the sidewalk
and donning black glasses, ascends
the stairs to your building


guided by a German shepherd.
After a couple faint knocks
at the door, he slowly opens
the book of blank pages


pointing out
with a pale manicured finger
particular clauses,
proof of your guilt.
