long time

long time

wind knocks my windows
pleasing rattle in time
tickling syncopated thoughts
flaunting flirtatiously in
synaptic space

following daisy chain
melodies --
playing while cat
cleans its paws

Siamese voice refrains
guttural without question
asking none

but scratch just behind the
ears

Earth meets sunlight once
again
thing called a new day
begins its tick away tempo

metronome flurry
sound quails at immensity
of it all

quaffing coffee
waiting for perfect
chord to arrive

a long time since
I've smiled at
all.
