Nocturnal Creature (a poem)

Nocturnal.
Definition?
People who are active at night.
A word I learned recently about myself.
 
Studies describe nocturnal people as smart and creative.
(Well, I’ll get back to you on that one.)
Studies say nocturnal people lag in academics.
(Nope, I didn't finish college.)
Studies say nocturnal people eat unhealthily.
(Uh huh, that explains my high blood pressure.)
 
Use to think being nocturnal was a hindrance.
A pain in the ass.
Cannot sleep at night.
Always late for work the next morning.
 
Now, I embrace being nocturnal.

About Patrick Scott Barnes

Most of Central Florida knows Stone Crazy (Patrick Scott Barnes) as a poet. Yet, he also photographs, DJ and blogs. The rest of the time, the now sober blogger guzzles Diet Coke in Central Florida nightspots.
