courting disaster

April 20, 2012 § 1 Comment

pacing back and forth
on the patio
howling like a tenor

his mind frayed
by instinct and frustration

allowed not even
a graduated amount of access
to his desired goal

who lay just on the other
side of the glass
stretched to her full length
on the sill of the basement window

neither aware that
at that very moment
I was taking up a broom
to put an end
to all this
disruptive courting


§ One Response to courting disaster

  • John Stevens says:

    Oh wow, this is fun – we’re left wondering just who or what these two are. Cats, I guess, but the mind keeps wandering on, finding alternatives, some quite bizarre.
