    First Forgotten


    As the words compel

    while I still remember,

    I'm the organ-grinder's

    monkey set to caper

    rattling my tin-cupped ear


    when the barreled handle turns,

    soliciting for rhymes,

    coins of the familiar,

    a cache estranged by time.

    Shake loose then
    when, at chance
    first glance, comes
    witty rhyming remnant.

    Or, backed around
    in altered sound
    of rhythms shining
    pendant,

    caught clear
    my ear finds
    this post here
    still shining,

    most resplendent.

    However it comes, whenever it comes, I'm glad for your capture and posting.

      This was a relief piece seeping out of
      inkling
      where words
      like a barrel organ
      had made
      me dance to their tune
