3 Late Night Tributes
In the wee hours I was watching a Bob Dylan special on PBS. It inspired me to write a poem on his emergence. Then I threw in tributes to Robert Frost and Langston Hughes.

B.D.

in just
a couple
of months
a transformation
took place
which made
his art
unrecognizably awesome
to those
who had
seen
his art
before

To Robert Frost

creating
ceaselessly creating
in hopes of creating
one small bit
that will stick

To Langston Hughes

party all night -
when every one else
is asleep -
do your writing

wake up in the afternoon
then
do it all over again

an ode to one who
wrote beautifully
and made many friends
