Faerie Godfather Loves The Booze

by Steve Mitchell

midnight

at midnight

the last tick

no tock

my slippers turn gold

my carriage awaits

a stretch limo

black

sleek

tinted green windows 

with gold

red leather

I’m a prince 

I’m the king

on my way to the ball

at midnight

it turns

in the dark blue dark

with the silver moon silver

overhead

beaming

midnight

at midnight

oh

it’s nice

I’m sure

but

you know

I’m

always

too

much

asleep
