footfalls

given to reveries
constantly indulge
in tedium’s back breaking
~
while soothing chants filter
flooding innards two squirrels
are locking horns outside
~
branches shake and shiver
shedding leaves still tender
in colors myriad green
~
there is much to preen over
some bits in teeth for venting spleen
but inbuilt lethargy simply lets it be
~
upstairs young couple
continue to rattle our ceiling
chasing their two cats any all hours
~
even this ruckus bothers us not
hubby stays deaf mute to world plugged
into own audio video world, selectively
~
mind’s clutter I continue to declutter
emptying its filled pockets for new
notes to filter in, lie snugly inside
~
being glutton for punishment
continue blurting mind’s matter
stray bull fragile china shopping
~
symbolically wearing death
wish chapeau, sufi mind twirls
continuously in ecstasy
~
