Momentary Dejection

June 25, 2013

—∞—

A fly buzzes
Hitting the screen
Wanting in
Wanting out
 
In hot, damp air
A ceiling fan
Hangs
Lifeless
 
Spots of moisture
Here and there
On floor, on table
Sweat, tears, or both
 
Silently, stupidly
A phone awaits
Replies
To unanswered calls
 
Birds singing
Unheard
Beautiful flowers
Unseen
 
On the horizon
A cloud
A single cloud
Coming or going
 
Bleakness, dejection
Momentary
But recognized
A fly buzzes
