Night Words

There is a gate where words wait
At the interlude of wake and sleep.
Jostling.  Shifting.
Disorderly.  They press forward.

Night words feel invincible
Flying away to hunt with Orion or
Sail with Argonauts.
The night word is brave and elusive.

Detect and intercept night words swiftly.
The common bedside notebook is the best snare.
The notebook will subdue the captives until dawn.
Night words are submissive in the morning.
