D. Milne /Living/

Living

in this thin grey house
a cellist
two tap dancers
one accordian player 
a siamese cat
and a madman    in the attic    with a piano 

staccato step patterns
string accompaniment
percussive variations
feline nattering   a constant counterpoint   

tonight  an intermezzo
silence   deep as Schopenhauer
lurks in the corner by the kitchen
colonises the turn of the stairs
expands to heal paper
thin identities

even the cat is out
ululating in solitude
at the circling stars
