Vampire Hours 

Kill me now
Or I will die
Writing.
“Too many
Characters.
Subplot too
Complicated.
Protect
The
Star--”
I’m trying!
Two
ante meridiem
Passes me every night
Yet
I do not lay down.
I fight!
I do not
Go quietly
Because I know,
Somehow,
From my plight:
The characters are there,
The pieces in place,
If I refine the words,
And economize the space…
It will all come out all right.

Maybe even tonight.
