June 5.20: Coping

7 Comments

In sonorous melancholy

from twilight until dawn

continuo of bagpipe

goes on and on and on.

His one note is perfected

in infinite repeat

in melody deficient

but heartfelt in its bleat.

He cannot sleep for want

of something he calls for

determinedly insistent

it just takes one croak more.

  1. Love it. Great way to start my day. Thank you for the smile. 🙂

  2. One more sounds optimistic, but I hope he finds love, if that’s what he’s after.

  3. Solidarity from the rest of us one note croakers out here, brother.
