daily tyler

I watched lots and lots of Nick at Nite as a kid. I probably know old sitcoms like the Patty Duke Show and Bewitched better than I know actual TV shows that were on the air back then. I watched a lot of the Dick Van Dyke Show and of course the Mary Tyler Moore Show. I had the theme song stuck in my head the entire time I drew this. We could all use a bit of Mary Tyler Moore’s spunk now.

Another 2AM Poem by Jeremy Manginell

I told myself to stop writing
these damn 2 am poems.
It isn’t that there’s anything particularly wrong
with writing at 2am,
but that 2am poems turn into 3 am poems.

My mind wanders.
Thoughts collide.

And the sound of the fan can’t drown out
the screams of goodbyes never said.
The constant warble sounds like “fine”
repeated over and over and over again.
And I use to think that fine meant “ok”.
But now I know it means the exact opposite.

And my mind wanders.
Thoughts collide.

And I wonder if my daughter is still proud of me.
If she knows how hard it is to lay dissected
on a table.
Why sometimes it is better to leave a light on.
And it isn’t that there’s anything particularly wrong
with 2am poems turning into 3am poems,
But 3am poems turn into 4am poems.

Any my mind wanders.
Thoughts collide.

And I’m scared it is a weakness
When I can’t fall asleep alone.
Scared that I’ll never sleep again or,
worse, never dream again.

Any my mind wanders.
Thoughts collide.

And the problem with 2am poems
Is that they become daylight poems
As the sun breaks the silence
and reminds me I’m still awake.
And alive.

But sometimes my mind wanders.
And thoughts collide.
