Half-Hour Home



A real inclemency about it

Night just this side of frost

Foot full down on the car pedal

Headache -- a prisoner amok --

Tearing through the skull halls

Mauling hostages with jail glass --

This cold transmogrifying

All known music to loud brass:

A dissonant cry, a wanting to stop me.

  1. And miles to go before I sleep. I like your play on frost/Frost. Nice.

  2. Willow,

    Thanks for noticing an homage that was purely unconscious! Does it even qualify as skill? You're right. Frost fits, in a way.

    And -- gal -- I sure am this side of Frost!

    Truly, Fool
