Poems April 2019

Sad Mouse Sonata

Sad mouse of a man
Drifting through the audience
Alight with opinions and non-stop commentary

Sad mouse
Clutch your stumbling heart
Hear your secret cacophony
Guess at god know what lurks behind everyone and everything
Teeth of cats everywhere
Owls over the parking lot
Brave you
Drive home and search for that forgotten bottle where you know exactly where it is
