~
Impish spirit tries
Hard to flee coop
Dragging limbs
notwithstanding

Peremptory knocks
Are those rude stones
Hitting youthful windows
Rendered by Ignored catcalls
~
Choices being scant
I eke out another half smile
From pain pursed lips, eyes
Further widened, questioning
~
Caregivers with different
Hats come in twos, fours
mumbling from sides
Of mafia mouths by rote
~
I speak my mind
No more minding
‘P’s ‘Q’s ┬ánon-plussing
They leave hum-hawing
~
Few put money where their mouth was ,
assiduously taken notes for show
soon dropped at wayside as I due to
Pain indifferently return to sleep
~
