NaPoWriMo: Almanac

Poetry Prevails


Someone scrawls “Mozart Rules!” across the toilet stall wall

but the  frog choir outside, inhabiting Rumi’s field,

give lie to the words before her ink is dry,

though who’s to say molecules of Mozart

have not imbued the leading bullfrog with unique

patterns of tone and harmony?  Poetry

prevails here, embraced by an eccentric women

prowling the leafy grounds dressed

in a velvet gown and round sombrero, accompanied

by Parsley the cat who risks freedom

for Cheetos and sleeps now in the front pew,

yellow crumbs still adorning  her whiskers,

 while live poets rise one after another

 to quote their dead commadres and padres

with tears, laughter and love.
