No Encores

Meeting Midnight Deadlines

By: - Dec 09, 2014



No Encores


Never stayed for encores
Covering rock concerts
Back in the day
Dragging a date down the aisle
First to leave the parking lot
Race to the office
Composing a lead in my head
In the car
Midnight deadline
Scribbled notes
Mostly song titles
One take
Five hundred words

Out to the City Desk
Editors around the rim
Dropped down the shoot
Hot type below
Mailbag edition
Dropped at the newsstand
Fresh type
Dense ink words raised
So Zen
First thoughts best thoughts
