Secrets, Shadows and Silence

TGIF Morning

There’s an orange-yellow morning sun
light in every story, peeling perfectly on its own
though not quite how we expect

the house cat leaps onto the table
draws three perfect circles
one way, turns and then goes three

the other. He knows
I’m watching. Meanwhile
after a long night, an airplane

carries someone’s beloved far away.
The local skunk saunters through my yard
like a drunken grandfather, toward home.
