THE BEST PART

sleep
with a book
of poems under
your pillow
 
tried it once
but it doesn't work
 
an old  
black & white
of Bettie Page
works better --
that sweet, dark
angel
of winks
and promises
born into
the dreams
of men
long before things
cut loose
and goddamn
if life wasn't better
on the cusp
of freedom
with one foot in
and one foot out
because promises
my friend
are often
the best part
of living
