dusk arising

an interesting day

 


It was entry into
a new world
Half way up the stairs
she stopped
only to ask
if the roses
on the bed
were mother\'s.
The breeze
out side
the window
tossed his
hair around.
In the
backyard
Jennie\'s kitten
was hiding from
some daft
barking mutt.
Behind an empty
trashcan.
Daft kitten.
50Hz a.c. lightbulbs
were never audible
before today
but he
could count
the Hertz. Every
damn one of them.
The doorhandle
screetched through
worn out
mechanics
as Mandy
shouldered
the door.
Stale dusty
upholstery
tickled his
nasal hair before
a sudden
involuntary sneeze
wracked his body.
That can\'t have
been sugar
in those sachets
he\'d picked up.
Birdwing flutter
sounds outside
suddenly
distracted him.
The mirror
caught Mandy
undressing.
He was suddenly
aroused.
Sugar or not
today was going
to be interesting.
