Chapter II

Creature Sad (excerpts)

Original Page

Creature Sad [296k]


When dense fog rolls in

Engulfs mind in a haze,

Dark, gray clouds loom low

On overcast days.


Instead of getting up,

Going outside to play,

All our sights, sounds and thoughts

Pull us inward this day.


No care or attention

To what is around,

We're pulled into ourselves

Where all motion slows down.


No care if the sun shines

Or the merry-goes-round.

No place for bright laughter

Or any other sound.


Everywhere Creatures

Whom we nudge and bump,

Quick flashes of eyes,

In our throat a lump.
