listening to
Crepuscule with Nellie
laying on the couch
and wondering how

the cat managed to
get the feather duster
out from behind the oversized
head of Plato staring
ever upward from his station
on the fireplace mantle

seeing the vanguished bird
in the middle of the floor
I thought
to retrieve it

it can wait
two minutes and
a half I said to the Greek

he did not argue
so I closed my eyes
listened and wondered
if he ever
pounded out philosophy
while wearing
a cool looking hat
