Disposable Days

img_1477_journey_through_the_country_400The ukulele played
And the Pianola swayed:
The cobblestone streets,
Black canvas sheets;
Torn,ragged,flapping,
Folded, slapping days. 
 
The sputtering
Eggs and bacon
Popping in the pan;
The splashing mugs and
Coffee cups measuring
Time,cigar folded
Time, ash floating in
The breeze like
Snowflakes.

A ballet
Sliding,gliding
On frozen lakes,
The lapdogs and
Cactus calls;
Howling hissing winds
Like drawn knives
Daggers deep
And sharp.
 
Darkened hollows,
Darting swallows;
And the gnashing
Of the teeth,
And the clashing
In the streets.

As the ukulele played
And the Pianola swayed;
The weary eyes,
The bleary sighs;
The sputtering
Eggs and bacon
Popping in the pan,
The splashing mugs
And coffee cups.

In these plastic
Styrofoam days;
These burnt
Disposable days.
