Moment of Silence

In a snowstorm I wrote this and posted this to my art blog.
Tonight, when I am tired and full of cramps, and post movie MILK, I am posting this poem here. More to follow at a time when I have more energy.

As I fold laundry

In murky silence of storm

I hear movement of gears

On mantle clock.

Tick tock

Tick tock

The gong sounds

Bongggggggggggggggg

Bongggggggggggggggg

- a moment of silence

Tick tock

Tick tock

Grey snow glows outside window.

Swoooooosh of slush from passing cars

Agitation of laundry in wash

Rain on roof.

drip drop.

Drip drop.

Tick tock

Tick tock.
