NO RAINY DAY ENNUI
(3/9/11)


where
has it gone?

my ability
to sit
for hours
listening to music
looking out the window
letting the rain fall
and watching
wildlife
and human
passersby

oh

that's right

I no longer
have a beer
in either
or both
hands

being partially
anesthetized
and alone
definitely added
to my ability
to sit still
and revel
for long
periods
of time

today
there are dozens
of projects
at hand
or hands
instead

if I
do not
remember them
my wife
will certainly
remind me

the squirrels
scamper
in the wet
and wonder
of the day
sans
my witness
