Today II

Sky of wet, raw linen

With occasional rips

To let the water out


Music at the restaurant

Was plain and banal

Matching the weather


A car hit the pillar outside

Leaving the roof held

By jokingly called “stripper poles”


Not much for today

Just pain and boredom

Held together by panic


Waiting for the dentist drill

And the traction pulley

Maybe escape with some music


Whistling away, the wind

Whips the last soggy leaves

Over to the next yard


Passing through a tunnel

The air like a freight train

Reaches a final destination


Only to roar off again
