Feeling Alone

feeling alone
in the woods around Edo
just the autumn wind

dry brown leaves swirl at my feet
pungent wood smoke fills the air

Cat Eye on Crow’s Feet

 

image

Back in my prime
When young and spry
I used to rock
A fierce cat eye
Eventually
There came a day
Old Father Time
Would make me pay
Where used to be
A single line
Now smudgy mess
Like I’ve been cryin’
And now alas
It spreads and grows
Resembling
The feet of crows

(Imagine this being recited in the voice of Vincent Price)
