today

time’s boot clad feet
relentlessly forward march
gobbling left days of February

yet jet lag fatigue felt
this frost bitten heart by February
is waiting for a gentler March

dreams these days do escape,
knee jerking sleep drooped eyes
as if broken eggs leaking into reality

even though rudely pinged
lazy eye lays shut, active opens
wide, rampant curiosity afflicted

lo and behold ! childhood
boogies have finally outstretched
limbs intruding age fogged mind

triumphantly scaring silly
aging flabby flesh, brittle bones
forcing stand ups to take notice

time’s boot clad feet
relentlessly forward march
gobbling left days of February

yet jet lag fatigue felt
this frost bitten heart by February
is waiting for a gentler March
