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.

More Carpe Diem: “Succulents”



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
