filling ears before bed -- Poetry 2011

After walking the dogs chilled fingers

spasm  words across the keyboard in random

way on the last November evening.

Should learn to properly type saving neck

cricked to watch every key stroke which

doesn’t guarantee correct spelling.

Last of news with flashing images spew

details of horrid incidents, sordid events, trauma,

corruption and deception that trickles into dreams;

can’t recommend the habit of actually listening to

nightly newscast even if their word speak ends

with positive chitter chat and sterling smiles…

wonder how they sleep after disgorging it all?
