From “Writing in the Dark” by Moody Black:

“…deep in their spirits they know
that weeping may endure for a night
but joy –
joy’s going to come in the morning.

But I was never a morning person
until the electric company
cut off my lights…

After one of my performances
a young lady told me:
‘I’d give my whole life
to write and perform
beautifully as you.’

I said:
‘Ma’am, I have.’”

Listen to the whole poem on the IndieFeed Performance Poetry podcast.
