Poem Lost in Sleep

Started a late night poem about Shakespeare,

but fell asleep at the midnight chimes

as did the computer, now morning awakened

it says “1582, at eighteen, marries Anne,

who is 26 and pregnant with Susanna.”


Inspired, at least initially, by Swan Town: The Secret Journal of Susanna Shakespeare (a novel)
