Background

Discouragement
insinuates
his innuendo
in the background,
sinister, sibilant,
steady rain beyond

the sky-black glass
of my two-room flat.

I hear the whisper,
I feel the seethe
as I listen to music,
tell my beads, or
sweep dust from corners
of the bedroom.

me too, I've lived this, haunting. your poems spotted me right on and leave me with prayers unsaid. We, humans don't reflect the same kind of energy both legs on earth. Do Walls not only listen but speak?

arquious
Not wanting discouragement or insinuation and defintiley abhor innuendo... sounds like a nonverbal gaslighter. And always, always the dust... they reproduce like rabbits.

I saw him down at Costco, fondling the Aubergines
I though he was a peculiar fella
much less than he seemed.

Getting serious, a short poem with some subtle sibilance.

Nice one Tom

I know that guy. He hangs around here when he's not at your place.
