Writing Skills

Versus Writing Thrills

She said she loved my writing skills

I hoped she would love me instead

It can start with the writing thrills

I would rather we start in bed


Counting sheep till we fall asleep

Though I prefer to name famed cats

Morris and Maurice in one sweep

Pretending there were never rats


The middle of the night, a sound

Reverberates across our heads

Someone’s awake and it’s not round

It’s longish, brutish and it spreads


I try to forget its standing

Ovation to a time long gone

It keeps steadily expanding

It’s still not morning, Don Juan
