Night-Blue Pillow, by Tricia Knoll 

I have faith in the night,

the blank page of my journal

beside the clock, water glass, a pen.


Let a dream guide me in

and out of rooms too small.

Let me be on time and ready


for the outer edge of my life

as it unfolds and refolds.

Be a hatchery of new.


My bed molds to my hip

and sinks under my arm,

the heft of my head.


I have faith in the night.
