Inspired by the following quote: “Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.” – John Wayne

midnight comes at us clean
black and sleek as a stallion
moon tossed in his mane
eyes flashing with wisdom
picked up along trails
through yesterday’s hardships
now rested and eager
to carry your ride
into imminent morning
fresh laid of new ground
exciting with perils
of unknown horizons
so long as you promise
to give him his head
