“breathe in


breathe out



― Muriel Rukeyser



Elfje:     (Cinquain)



song, dance

whats your choice

hearts beating with joy





spirit of all things

ethereal nature moves

the sound of silence




she shouted from the other room
something about a flower in bloom

I turned on my selective hearing
my thoughts turned to disappearing

her insistence sounded like a request
or maybe a very small order at best

obviously my turn, should I answer
I felt I was being treated like a gandy dancer

another yelp and the tone became stern
just go on, do it, her affections to earn

I go before the queen, who gave me audience
years and tears have given me sapience

a man should know that a happy wife
gives him a very happy life . . .

ME and the Boss
