Shut down & showered


I'm not shutting
down right yet,
noise of my desk top
despite the command,

because i know
and you know...

what you tried
to say,
but didn't quite
do it,

and won't
if you don't
sketch a picture
directly as it comes
to you,

therefore
in the dark living
room, just now,
with the birds
twittering outside,

after showering,
and the towel
stank a little
bit,

and I walked
back in
picked up Hank,
and saw therein,

more of the good
original stuff
that life is made
up of,

and write this,
with a more realistic
edge,

because real life
is lived,
just like it is...

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
