Possibilities written by DjWhite

It's possible that I'll find
you stewing
on the stove

layered between bubbles
of beef and sour cream;

or maybe I'll see you
gripped frantically
at the end of the cat's tail

desperately holding
to self-preservation.

Often, I'll catch
you swagger through
the door

just behind my smarter half
around dinner time at 6PM

listen to you
snickering at the heated debate

between him and his zipper
over the frailty
of restraint's constitution.

But, normally, it'll be
on a rainy afternoon --

while I sit beside the window
in this oak rocker
creaking back and forth
to muse's rhythm

and listening to the pat, pat, pat
of double-paned complaints,

--  that you'll  peek
at me from Picasso's
or Monet's brush stokes

or flutter from Baudelaire's
bound thoughts

reminding  me
that they too,

were inspired
by someone else's
