72 Times Per Minute

It is dreary here and

Quite cold and wet

A terrible draft as well.

It’s very dusty here

And the cobwebs

Are the only art

The floors creak

With the rafters

Harmonically

And the roof leaks

There’s no glass

In any of the

Windows

Weeds grow through

The corner of each

Room.

There’s dirty dishes still in the sink

The clothes still hang on the line

And the dog still begs at the door

The mal is filling up the box

And the garden is dead

At day it’s very quiet

While the sun beams violence

And at night it’s still quiet

While the moon glows vibrant.

Its home and were all invited.

you're right about one thing as a poet you're awful -----

awfully good - well let me correct that - awfully grand - no hold on - I'M FROM MARS so you must forgive me - awfully great!!!!

I am here earthling on your planet collecting information about human creativity - did you invent it by any chance?

If not - who is ahead of you - can't think of anyone myself or else they would be awfully AWESOME!!!

Just damn good...the form and subject meld perfectly...Your last line shook me. I would very much like to see more of your poetry in the future.

Just stopping by to say I'm reading your stuff... Not sure what to make of it yet - rather - it's making me think, however, I'm not sure what I've come up with yet!

:)
