A Prayer Upon The Occasion Of Another Midnight-News-Check

Dear God
Of internets and sirens

Let this be a normal night
The kind that robs us
of no sleep

The kind of night we forget
in the thick moss
Of life’s mundanity

The kind of night no one
looks back on
With reverence and

A night with no ritual
of refreshing the news page
just give us a new day
of tranquil screens.
