And what of EURYDICE… i.e. things I would rather do
Written by

In response to pain, one would like to be impervious.

When the Oak unfurls its leaves to the Sun, it’s almost courteous.

And yet -- when the Rain splattered on the asphalt, it smacks of scurrilous!


A hungry bird will peck, peck, peck; it’s almost murderous.

Cruelty to animals stimulates my surliness.

Journeying to Hades was the task of Orpheus.

Will I ever do anything, of such worthiness?

A cat contemplates life – a bacchanalian studiness.

Of such meditative demeanor, I’m almost envious.

And who is that bird who sings in the day at the earliest…

When it comes to pain, I guess I’m not imperious.

Closing one’s eyes and drifting, returning, to Morpheus.

Let's be friends
