What Flag


What flag do you fly at your house,
Professor Thelonious Mouse?
A flag that’s brand-new
Is right for a shrew,
But an old flag works for a louse.

old alcoholic
distracted from her drinking
completely sober
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
walking in the barn
her genuine sympathy
for the cat-mauled mouse
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
first night of the year
her modest white kimono
falling to the floor
