Late night at home

Late night at home
in electric bulb light:
rays like spider web
stretch down
to hands and typewriter.

The deepest shadows
are in the words themselves,
slapped down in fuzzy pica.
Most tragic are
the shadows of dawn
when the night is used up
and thin rays of morning
bring no sense of release.
