the desk of a thousand drawers

May 16, 2014 § 2 Comments

can only accommodate
a single chair

which at this hour
keeps the old guy from
wandering off

as he is known to do
just ask the neighbors
they will tell you
of all the times

one or a few would
at the request of his frazzled wife
go in search

after being returned
he would empty his pockets
of the stories his travels
churned up

the desk of a thousand drawers
grows heavier
one word at a time
