Two Unshooed

My girlfriend left me a prose note today, which I then arranged as lines of verse and added a title:

Two Unshooed

One fly
in here
and I swear
the door
was opened
momentarily
while carrying
the litter
out front

Second fly
in the front
house
not sure
how
that one
got in

It's the same story

Hey now. Hew now. Hai
-ku Hai-ku all day. Joco
mo fe no na na

Oops. I ran out of
syllables. Needed one more.
Sucks when that happens.

lone goose

LONE GOOSE

The flocks of geese are
Headed south
Honking and screeching
And forming into vees
Flying all night alone
Now the day breaks
But he doent know it, he doesn't rest
Or even slow down
He's got to get back To his one true love The only one who
Knows his sound
He calls and calls
As he flaps and flaps For
he knows she
Has many suitors
And their bright feathers
Might lure her away
So the day breaks
With a north wind
And dense fluffy clouds
And he honks her name
And flaps and flaps.

A Feline View of Chiroptera's Echolocation

the cats don't know
what to think about
the bats
flying mice flickering
shadows of night fall
the cats
sit alert eyes skyward
ears rotoring tracking
the bats
high-pitched clicking
flitting ravenously by

Rectum? It damn near killed him.

Thanks slo and Anna, but how would I like it to be credited? Two shy of a dozen formicidae, would do it, I'm thinking:

By Ten Ants

The Landlord

Thanks Mike,
(My personal lament follows yours)

When you purse
your lips like that

does your anus
pucker up as well?

When you arrogantly deny obvious reality
Are worms gnawing holes in your brain?

Do you honestly believe we
Wouldn't rather have to deal with you?

Landlords are the greatest advertisement
for collective, communal co-habitation.

Thanks again Mike- all credit to you!
